A Certificate in European Union Studies

Program Requirements

The European Union Studies Certificate at Kennesaw State University is part of a multi-institution collaborative offered by the University System of Georgia. The program is designed to provide students in-depth multi-disciplinary knowledge of the European Union. Students who successfully complete the certificate will be prepared to move into a range of occupations for which familiarity with the European Union is an asset. They will also have the foundation necessary to pursue graduate study in fields related to the European Union.

Students wishing to earn the certificate must complete five (5) courses. They include: EURO 3234 Introduction to the European Union, three upper-division elective courses, and POLS 4433 European Union Politics and Policy (or other coordinator-approved capstone course). Certificate courses can be taken at KSU. EURO designated courses are also available online through the USG collaborative. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in certificate courses.
