It includes one three-credit core course -- History 8310, “Readings in World History”– and 12 credits of courses in a continental distribution chosen from three areas: Africa, Asia, Latin America, Middle East, and Europe.  One transnational course (i.e. citizenship, constitutional and legal history, gender, migration and ethnic, international relations, labor, and urban) may be taken in lieu of one in the continental distribution. A list of courses available to Certificate students is available below. Students must maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average and complete the Certificate within three years.

A Graduate Bridge Certificate allows students to incorporate all of their coursework for the Certificate into the History Master’s degree program if they decide to pursue the degree after completing the Certificate.
