Undergraduate Embedded Certificate in European Affairs

The Certificate in European Affairs, offered jointly by the School of History, Technology, and Society and the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, recognizes the achievement of concentrated knowledge in a subject area. Europe is intrinsically interesting and worthy of study. Its peoples, cultures, and histories contain a microcosm of the human experience. No matter your course of study at Georgia Tech, it will be enriched by contemplation of the European experience. Industry, government, and non-governmental organizations need university graduates with informed perspectives on Europe. This certificate allows students to choose courses on such topics as ancient or recent European history, in-depth studies of modern European countries, and foreign policy through international affairs. All courses which satisfy the European Affairs certificate requirements also fulfill either humanities or social science requirements necessary for all Tech students.
