Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies
European Union Certificate Program
Students who successfully complete 15 credits in courses dealing with the European Union as part of their EES program are qualified to receive a Certificate in European Union Studies. The Certificate is offered by the American Consortium of European Union Studies (ACES), a Washington-area consortium of institutions consisting of GW, Georgetown University, George Mason University, American University and the Nitze School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University. With the advice of the Program Director, students may take courses on the European Union at any of these institutions and count them as part of their 40-credit EES program at the Elliott School. Only courses specifically designated by ACES as courses on the European Union will count toward the Certificate. Consult the Program Director or the ACES website for a listing of courses.
