Graduate Certificate Programs


Through its Graduate Certificate Programs, the ESC offers opportunities for graduate students to develop and expand their understanding and knowledge about the European Union, Western Europe, the Mediterranean region, or the Transatlantic relationship/Transatlantic space.  The Certificates are regional/area studies certificates designed to enable students in any graduate program (including the professional schools) to complement their degree studies with an interdisciplinary set of area studies coursework directly related to one of these regions.  They also certify proficiency in a relevant world language other than English.

Graduate Certificates offered:

Certified courses are offered in the departments of anthropology, classics, economics, English, fine arts, history, history of art and architecture, music, philosophy, political science, sociology, the language departments of French and Italian, German, Hispanic Languages and Literatures, the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) and the School of Law, among others.

Steve Lund, Assistant Director of the European Studies Center, advises undergraduate and graduate students. Steve helps ensure that students understand graduation requirements and are aware of co-curricular opportunities related to Western Europe and the European Union.  He also helps students design a program of interrelated courses according to the student's interests, career aspirations, and educational goals. You can contact Steve at
