Interested in Europe?

In addition to expertise on existing European Union structures and processes, EURUS brings to the diploma program a particular focus on EU enlargement in the post-communist countries of Central/Eastern Europe, as well as on Canada-EU relations.

The diploma program provides preparation for professional work or further study in the field. Carleton University and the city of Ottawa offer a wealth of resources to support the program. The Carleton University Library is a documentation center for the European Commission where many public documents published by the European Union are deposited. Additional materials are available in the library of the Delegation of the European Commission in downtown Ottawa.

European visitors offer diploma students opportunities for discussion both inside and outside the classroom. Diploma students receive individual mentoring from faculty members in the context of EURR 5809, where diploma students present their own research work.

Diploma Requirements

The Graduate Diploma in European Integration Studies is intended to provide an additional qualification to the student’s main degree. Students who enroll in the program must already be registered in a graduate degree program at Carleton University.

Students complete 2.5 credits of graduate coursework and take part in a non-credit seminar (EURR 5809).

Please review the Graduate Calendar for a complete outline of program requirements.
