International Relations Graduate Certificate Programs in Paris, France

Certificate Programs

Wednesday, 22 July 2009

The Certificate programs at AGS are designed for graduate students and professionals who wish to deepen or complement their knowledge in specific areas of international relations. They are a perfect career booster for those working or seeking work in governmental, nongovernmental, intergovernmental, or private organizations involved in the area of specialization.

The AGS Certificate programs are part-time programs consisting in one or two-course modules. They are taught in English, in Paris. Each course involves three hours per week of class time; in the case of two courses, they can be taken during one same semester or over two different semesters.

Upon successful course completion, students earn a Certificate in International Relations specifying the number of courses that they successfully completed, as well as their subjects.

All courses are accredited in the US through AGS's partner institution Arcadia University (each course bears 3 graduate credits). Courses taken as part of a Certificate program can be transferred to a full degree program at AGS (M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy or Ph.D. in International Relations and Diplomacy), or to a program in another institution depending on that institution's transfer policy.

Note that these programs are best suited to students or professionals already residing in Paris, since part-time programs in France do not grant eligibility for a student visa. However, it is possible to combine a certificate with other courses at AGS or with French language courses at AGS's partner institution Alliance Fran├žaise Paris-Ile de France in order to reach a full-time status (three or four courses). Please contact our Academic Coordinator for more information about this:

Please also note that the Certificate program offering is based on course availability. See two-year course schedule
