At Connecticut College, you can take your academic experience to a higher level by combining your major with a certificate program.
Academic Center Certificates
Four of the College's interdisciplinary centers offer certificates that you can combine with your major.
- Holleran Center for Community Action and Public Policy
- Toor Cummings Center for International Studies and the Liberal Arts
- Goodwin-Niering Center for the Environment
- Ammerman Center for Arts & Technology
You apply to a center in your sophomore year. Selected students earn their center certificate by completing a three-year program of coursework, a summer internship and a senior integrative project, in addition to the requirements for their major.
