Central and Eastern European Studies (Certificate)
The re-emergence of Central Europe has been one of the most significant developments of this generation. The "lands between," as those countries have been called, have historically been deeply influenced, and at times dominated, by Russia and Germany.
This certificate program should be useful to students across the university to add an international focus to their studies. Members of the Greater Cleveland community, especially those with business interests in the area, may also find this program of particular value.
Students wishing to earn a Certificate in Central and Eastern European Studies must complete 16 semester hours from the following list of courses. These courses must come from at least two different disciplines. If the student is completing a major in one of those disciplines, only one course taken to meet the minimum major requirement may also be counted toward the certificate.
