Certificate of Undergraduate Study

This interdisciplinary certificate is intended to provide broad background in the area of adolescence and is offered through Northern Illinois University’s Collaborative on Early Adolescence (NIU-CEA). The certificate is designed to complement undergraduate course work in a variety of majors. It is open to all NIU undergraduates who maintain a good academic standing in the university. A minimum grade of C in all certificate courses is required. All certificate courses must be completed within six calendar years. Students must complete a minimum of 12 semester hours. Courses must be taken in at least two departments. Some courses may have prerequisites that are not part of the certificate course work. In some cases, these prerequisites can be waived by the department offering the course for students pursuing the certificate. With the approval of the major department, courses used to satisfy requirements of the certificate may also be applied toward an undergraduate major. Students are encouraged to meet with the Director of the Collaborative on Early Adolescence early in planning their coursework for the certificate.
