The European Union Studies Certificate will provide students with in-depth multi-disciplinary knowledge of the European Union. The program is also designed to provide applied knowledge of the EU in a professional context outside the classroom. Students enrolled in the certificate program choose from a menu of courses available at KSU from a variety of disciplines, as well as on-line classes team taught by faculty from the University System of Georgia and Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich. The program is directed towards preparing students to move into business/professional occupations and/or graduate study related to the European Union.

To earn the certificate, students must take a total of six courses including the Introduction to the European Union (HIST 3307), four courses from an extensive menu of EU courses either online or in the classroom, and a capstone seminar. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in required courses. In addition, students must complete a practicum: a visit to an EU country or an internship with an EU company.
