Language Certificates for FCCWL Students

The Five College Center for World Languages (FCCWL) will issue a Certificate of Achievement or a Certificate of Specialization to any Five College student who has studied a less-commonly studied language through FCCWL and has met certain milestones in language study. 

These certificates provide an efficient way for students studying less-commonly studied languages to demonstrate language accomplishments for employment, graduate school, and fellowship applications. The Certificates of Achievement and Certificates of Specialization provide special recognition for consistency, dedication, and higher levels of achievement in studying a less-commonly studied language. These are certificates issued directly by FCCWL to provide evidence of language study for resumes, applications, and portfolios. They will not appear on a student’s transcript. 

Certificates of Achievement – For students who have studied for at least four levels/three semesters.
