Application for admission to the Certificate is currently available to any matriculated graduate student in the College of Arts and Humanities (ARHU) at the University of Maryland’s College Park campus.

Admission is selective, and will be offered at the discretion of the program Director and the Advisory Board. Considerations in admissions decisions will include the student’s current academic standing, the extent to which students can demonstrate that their research or professional plans are compatible with the goals and objectives of the program, and—vitally—diversity.

We regret that we cannot offer admission to candidates who are not currently graduate students already enrolled in an ARHU department or program on the College Park campus, though enrollment in the Colloquium or other individual courses may be possible subject to instructor approval.

To Apply

Application to the Certificate may be made by contacting and arranging an advising appointment with the director.
