The European Studies Program offers undergraduates the opportunity to earn a  Certificate in European Studies. Potential recipients of the Certificate:

  • Demonstrate a commitment to the study of Europe by attaining competency in a European language (other than English);
  • Take either courses that address Europe as a whole or a combination of courses that cover at least three European countries or subregions from at least two different departments.

The Certificate in European Studies is a valuable entry on an undergraduate's record. For undergraduates applying to graduate schools to study Europe, the Certificate can point to a sustained level of interest in the continent. For students seeking employment in businesses dealing with Europe, the Certificate can demonstrate a breadth of background in the continent not normally found among U.S. undergraduates.
