The Center for European Studies, cooperating with participating academic units, offers a Certificate in Modern European Studies in conjunction with the master’s and doctoral degrees. To obtain the Certificate, students at the master’s level need to complete 13 credit hours and students at the doctoral level need to complete 16 credit hours of courses with European content. Both master’s and doctoral students are required to complete a 1-unit EUS 6005 Introduction to European Studies course as part of their credit requirements. Given the critical role of languages to the comprehensive study of Europe, all certificate recipients are required to complete at least one year of training at the 2000 level or above in at least one European language. However, in accordance with graduate school regulations no language courses below the 3000 level will be included within the certificate program itself. Those students with a high level of language training, however, may count up to a maximum of two language courses at the 3000 level or higher towards the completion of the Certificate in Modern European Studies. In all cases students must complete at least 9 credit hours of course work outside their home department or unit.
