Eligible Courses

These Spring 2023 undergraduate courses are eligible to be counted toward the Undergraduate Certificate. Cross-listed courses are listed only once. Some encompass more than one Zone, though for the purposes of the distribution requirement, you can count them only once. Graduate-level courses with a MDVL number may also be counted toward the Certificate. Depending on reading and coursework, other Yale College courses may also be eligible for the certificate; if you have questions about whether and how a course might count, please speak to a Certificate Adviser. For previous Certificate-eligible courses, see the course archive
