Our certificate program offers a unique regional studies curriculum for CU Boulder undergraduate students with a passion for the American West. Our multi-disciplinary format allows an exploration of the region’s characteristic and evolving issues: from its flora and fauna to its history and literature; from the political, social, cultural, economic, and environmental concerns facing Westerners to the landscapes and ecosystems that they inhabit.

This 18-credit hour program includes an introductory course and a capstone course, and allows students to choose the remaining 4 classes from a variety of academic areas.
