M.A. in International Studies

Certificate Programs

JSIS graduate students can enhance their studies through various certificate programs offered through the University of Washington. A full list of certificate options is listed on the UW Graduate School site. With the exception of the Trans-Atlantic Studies program (details below,) the certificate programs are open only to graduate students. Some of the courses required for these certificates will satisfy JSIS program requirements as well.


This certificate is for students interested in US-European relations, comparative public policy and political culture. Students spend one quarter studying abroad at the University of  Bath (UK) and return to the UW Winter Quarter to complete an American Module consisting of two courses and a “Special Events Series.” This series provides a Northwest view of American politics and US-European relations through visits with officials from various Northwest institutions and organizations. Some extra cost is involved but a few travel grants may be available.
