Description of the Program
Archaeology, by its very nature, is interdisciplinary, and he development of more and more scientific applications has increased this characteristic. Indeed, today, the archaeological sciences permeate modern archaeological research. It is no longer possible to study archaeology without being familiar with an often bewildering and steadily increasing variety of scientific applications, including GIS, palynology, stable isotope analysis, chemical analysis of glazes, and a variety of dating techniques, such as TMS, TL, OSL, AMS radiocarbon. On the UGA campus, there is significant interest in archaeology and its scientific applications among students in anthropology, art, biology, classics, ecology, forestry, geography, and geology. The goal of the CPAS is to consolidate and coordinate the archaeology curriculum so as to facilitate broader participation from across campus and expose students to the true scope of archaeology as a discipline.

The CPAS is designed with sufficient flexibility to allow students from a variety of departments and with a variety of backgrounds to participate and earn the certificate. There are two components: a set of required courses (9 semester hours) and a set of elective courses (6 semester hours). The required courses are divided among three areas: scientific methods, cultural context, and practical field work. Thus students are required not only to exhibit competence in scientific methods and theories but also to apply them practically both in the field and in the classroom to either a New or Old World culture. The elective courses include, among others, more advanced studies of soils, geomorphology, zooarchaeology, osteology, and ancient cultures. Together the required and elective courses in the CPAS total 15 semester hours.

Upon completing the certificate, students In addition, the CPAS provides students with an important credential documenting the extra effort they made to prepare themselves for an advanced degree program or the employment market in contract archaeology.

Required Courses:
Take one from each of these three groups to total no more than 9 hours.

Group 1: Scientific Methods in Archaeology

 Description of the Program
The Certificate in Business and Political German is an interdisciplinary program integrating the study of business and language that is aimed at students who want to combine an undergraduate degree in Business with extensive German language and business studies. The program is designed to enable students to acquire proficiency in German, competency in the interpretation of German culture and business affairs, and experience studying and working abroad in authentic academic and business settings. It is a collaborative effort of the University of Georgia's Department of Germanic & Slavic Languages, the Terry College of Business, and the School of Economics and Social Sciences at the Friedrich–Alexander Universität Erlangen–Nuremberg, located about two hours north of Munich in the state of Bavaria, Germany.

To earn the certificate, business students must first complete several German courses at the University of Georgia, including courses focusing on German business and politics. Once they have taken residence in the twin cities of Erlangen–Nürnberg, students enroll in additional language classes, complete an internship with a German company, and study German and Business for one semester in Nuremberg. Although not a requirement of the program, it is recommended that students participate in UGA's study abroad summer program in Erlangen prior to the beginning of the certificate program. The certificate program normally commences in January and runs through the end of July in any given year.

Students will be able to transfer credit earned throughout their studies in Germany toward both their business and German degrees. The number and kinds of credits will be determined on an individual basis.

Program Reqirements
To earn the Certificate, German students must satisfy the following requirements:
(1) Earn a total of 15 upper–division GRMN credits including
  –  GRMN 3070: Language: Business and Politics I or GRMN 3080: Language: Business Politics II (or equivalent)
  –  GRMN 4810: Contemporary Issues in German Business and Politics (or equivalent)
  –  Nine additional hours of GRMN courses at the 3000/4000–level (excluding GRMN 3500)

    Description of the program
    The undergraduate certificate program in Computer Systems Engineering is designed to give undergraduates the opportunity to document their educational achievement at the interface of engineering and computer science. The program will be open to all UGA undergraduate students but will be of special interest to students who wish to combine both a theoretical and practical understanding of computer science and engineering systems.

    Computer Systems Engineering involves the design and implementation of computer hardware and software systems to solve problems. The understanding of both software and hardware allows the computer systems engineer to view the design and development of hardware and software as two intimately linked parts of one activity. Advances in semiconductor technology have led to a decrease in chip size while increasing processor speeds. As a consequence, microcomputers are embedded into products such as automobiles, home appliances and industrial controls. The growth in computer–related technologies has led to a need in industry for professionals who have a knowledge of basic electrical engineering concepts of circuits, electronics and digital systems and a foundation in computer science.

    The Computer Systems Engineering certificate program is interdisciplinary and emphasizes the use of computers to automate, monitor and control various systems. The graduate with the Computer Systems Engineering certificate will be able to interface existing electronic and microprocessor based components to solve a problem. These graduates must be knowledgeable in computer hardware and software and be able to work in a team environment. They must be able to communicate and function across the disciplines of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science.

    Educational Goal
    The goal of the program is to develop undergraduate scholars with a theoretical and practical understanding of computer science and engineering systems.

    Students successfully completing the requirements for this certificate are expected to have:
  • a fundamental understanding of computer science and engineering systems,
  • the necessary knowledge and skills to pursue graduate work or employment in computer systems engineering,
  • the background to use microelectronics, microprocessors, and software to solve problems in engineering systems,
  • the knowledge and motivation to continue lifelong learning in engineering and computer science.

    Program Requirements
    The undergraduate certificate program in Computer Systems Engineering requires at least 18 semester hours of course work in engineering and computer science. The requirements include at least 15 hours in engineering and computer science electives and a 3–hour computer systems engineering design course. The 15 hours of engineering and computer science electives must be outside the student's major department and be approved by the student's CSE undergraduate advisor. Design is the heart of the practice of engineering and is what separates it from its sister disciplines. It is the engineering design component that unites engineering and computer science into computer systems engineering. With a large number of electives available, the student may tailor the program to meet his or her needs. Thus the program will likely be attractive to students with a variety of interests.

    The UGA certificate program in Computer Systems Engineering requires a firm foundation in the fundamentals in engineering science and computer science.

     Description of the Program
    Writing is a critical skill in all fields and professions. The Writing Certificate Program gives undergraduate students from all colleges and majors at the University of Georgia an opportunity to develop and document their writing skills as they progress through their academic careers. Their writing skills will be developed in the context of their particular disciplines and be documented in a published ePortfolio that presents and reflects on the students’ writing projects and experiences. The writing done for the program will form a record of the students’ critical thinking, research, and communication skills, and highlight their understanding of conventions of writing within their chosen fields. The certificate will provide, through the ePortfolio, evidence for outside evaluators (e.g. admissions committees or employers) of students’ written communication skills.

    Entrance Requirements
    Students must have completed ENGL 1101 and 1102 with a grade of C or better (or have received credit for these courses through alternate means).

     Description of the Program
    The Water Resources Certificate Program prepares students for related careers in environmental science and management. Protecting the long–term ecologic health of our rivers and streams is an important national goal. Yet our society has ever–increasing demands for inexpensive supplies of high–quality water.

    The program provides a common curriculum to meet the educational needs of the next generation of environmental scientists and managers. Many of the courses provide hands-on experiences in an outdoor setting to learn about water resources.

    The purpose of the program is to train students to manage our scarce water resources for the maximum benefit of the world's population, while at the same time preserving the ecologic integrity of our aquatic resources.

    Certificate Requirements
    There are TWO requirements for the Undergraduate Certificate in Water Resources.
    1. An enrolled undergraduate student must complete three credit hours in five of the following six categories:
      • Water Resource Foundations
      • Water Quality Foundations
      • Hydrologic Processes
      • Biological Interactions
      • Management, Economics, and Policy
      • Applications
      A list of classes making up these categories can be obtained by visiting http://water.uga.edu/classes/undergraduate_classes

    2. The second requirement is the completion of six water resources seminars. Attendance at each seminar must be documented by providing a one-paragraph summary of the presentation to Jenny Yearwood. A list of current Water Resources Seminars can be found at our calendar. A maximum of three (of the six) seminars can be taken online at Cyberseminars.
