World Languages (P2P Certification)

D&E proudly offers a state-of-the-art world language certificate program.

Program Highlights

The World Language P2P (Pathways to Proficiency) program is designed to allow full-time D&E students to develop their skills in a variety of languages in a flexible but supportive environment.  Along with two 1-hour scheduled courses to support student learning, students participate in a mentored program, which includes face-to-face study groups as well as guided online practice and out-of-class informal communications.  Participants may gain an extra 3, 6, 9 or 12 semester hours of credit based on an online assessment.  Students may become certified in any language not their native tongue and that can be tested.

Why get certified in a World Language?

In an increasingly globalized world, proficiency in more than one language is a valued skill set in many fields.   Demonstrable proficiency in a language is often required for some graduate studies.

D&E’s unique program allows motivated students to enjoy an environment in which to improve their proficiency of a language they may have had experience in or are just starting. Students also may use their certification to apply for the Global Seal of Biliteracy.
