What is the difference between the PSU Certificate of Advanced Proficiency in Russian and certification by The Language Flagship?

The Certificate of Advanced Proficiency is a PSU Certificate that can be awarded to any student upon completion of required courses. Students do not need to study abroad to receive the PSU Certificate.
