National Certification

We strongly encourage students in the Chinese Flagship Program to apply for national certification through The Language Flagship during their senior year.

Language Flagship certification distinguishes students who have professional language proficiency (Superior) and career-related training in their chosen academic field. Those who successfully receive certification can concretely demonstrate to potential employers their language abilities, making them a true asset in any field.

To qualify for Language Flagship certification, students must:

  • Complete Flagship Program coursework
  • Complete coursework for their selected major
  • Complete Capstone year abroad
  • Achieve Superior proficiency in speaking and writing, as defined through standardized testing
