The multidisciplinary Certificate in Albanian and Southeastern European Studies consists of four 4-credit hour courses (16 credit hours total), and is available to DePaul undergraduate and non-degree seeking students. It explores the intersections and connections of Albanian history, language, culture, and politics to the larger regions of the Balkans, Eastern Mediterranean, and Southeastern Europe. Many of the courses in the certificate can be double counted toward the learning domains, and students can build their own interdisciplinary curriculum by drawing on courses from different disciplines that explore the history, politics, and culture of Albania and Kosovo, Southeastern Europe, and the European Union through multiple perspectives. This certificate helps students to internationalize their academic plan, and can also demonstrate an understanding of Albania, Southeastern Europe, and broader European culture, history, and politics to potential graduate schools or employers.

- Three 4-credit hour elective courses (see sample course list below for details)
