The Scandinavian Studies Certificate Program is open to all students seeking a bachelor's degree from UWM and to students who previously received a bachelor's degree from UWM or any other accredited college or university. Students currently involved in baccalaureate studies who successfully complete the requirements of the program will be awarded the certificate at the time of graduation. Students who already have a bachelor's degree receive the certificate upon completion of the program requirements.

The majority of the certificate requirements may be completed at Malardalen University, UWM's sister university in Sweden. Students attending Malardalen University pay UWM tuition and take courses on the Swedish language and Scandinavian culture. Students also may take courses in pursuit of their other academic interests, either in Swedish or in English.

To complete the certificate, students must earn a minimum GPA of 3.0 in 18 credits of Scandinavian studies courses selected from the following two areas:
