CERTIFICATE LANGUAGES:


WELCOME, FOREIGN LANGUAGE SPEAKERS!

If you have studied and speak one of BYU’s 10 most widely taught foreign languages and would like to receive official recognition, you have found the right place!

The Language Certificate Program now provides two forms of foreign language recognition:

  • An official notation of your second language proficiency ("Advanced," "Mastery," or "Professional") printed on your BYU TRANSCRIPT. (Placed directly below your degree listing.)
  • A BYU Language Certificate endorsing your completion of advanced coursework, and your ratings for the ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) assessments for speaking and writing.

Both of these will make a meaningful addition to your resume as you begin your career and/or apply for graduate studies. Even if your foreign language skills aren't necessarily a part of your career plan, they will set you apart in any field.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

The Language Certificate program is available to all matriculated BYU students who are pursuing any BYU undergraduate degree.

BYU graduates from the classes of April 2009 through August 2010 who completed the required language courses as an undergraduate student at BYU may participate. (See Program Requirements.)
