Certificate Admission

Students interested in STS are welcome to email Dr. Tomblin (dtomblin@umd.edu) to obtain advice and approval prior to enrolling in courses that fulfill the program. To register with the program, state your intention to earn the STS Certificate and make an appointment to plan your course of study.

Students record their progress with the STS program office as they complete requirements, and they participate in a semi-annual advising meeting.

The University Certificate program in STS is open to any student at UMCP. The 100- and 200- level courses required of the University Certificate in STS can also serve to fulfill the College Park Scholars program in STS, so a student who completes the Scholars curriculum needs only a few more courses to complete the University Certificate in STS.
