Certificate of Biliteracy

Certificate of Biliteracy


Biliteracy has tremendous value in today’s globalized world, professionally and personally. According to Ipsos Public Affairs, over 90% of surveyed employers cite a strong and growing demand for foreign language skills, particularly Spanish. Whether you learned Spanish in a classroom, at home, or through other experiences, a Certificate of Biliteracy celebrates your accomplishment and certifies your language proficiency in two or more languages.

By design, the Certificate of Biliteracy is inclusive, in that it embraces all learners and intends to provide equal access and expanded opportunity. Independent from a Spanish major or minor (although majors/minors can receive one after completing the program), any Undergraduate major or KSOE student can obtain the certificate. It offers a flexible, accurate, and reliable standard by which to recognize language skills at levels that are meaningful for academic and workplace environments.
