In addition to existing European Union (EU) structures and processes, the diploma program focuses on EU enlargement in the post-communist countries of Central/Eastern Europe, as well as on Canada-EU relations. The program provides preparation for professional work or further study in the field. The Carleton University library is a documentation centre 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. This diploma in European Integration Studies is only open to students currently enrolled in a graduate degree program at Carleton University and is intended to provide an additional qualification to the student’s main degree.

Additional Admission Requirements:
  • Letter(s) of Reference
The normal requirement for admission to the master's program is an honours degree (or equivalent), with at least a B+ average. For admission to the program, applicants should normally meet the following requirements: a four-year degree (or equivalent) in a humanities or social science discipline, with demonstrated coursework in the European/Russian/Eurasian area, ideally covering multiple disciplines (not solely language courses); and a reading knowledge of an appropriate major European/Eurasian language other than English (normally equivalent to two academic years of instruction, or one year with an intensive summer program). Applicants may be admitted with no proficiency or inadequate proficiency in an appropriate language; in this case they must be prepared to undertake additional language training during the course of the MA program in addition to fulfilling the normal M.A. requirements. Practical experience in the area of study will also be taken into consideration.

Applicants who do not have the required interdisciplinary background in the European/Russian/Eurasian area are encouraged to apply to the program, but additional coursework beyond the 5.0 credits may be required.
