About European Studies

The European Studies Major and Minor aim to equip students to appreciate the richness of European cultures, societies, and languages that are fundamental to understanding Europe, as well as other parts of the world.

General information about the European Studies Major and Minor.

The program provides the opportunity to study this region from the vantage points of several disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, both historically and contemporary.

This includes questions pertaining to cultural, economic, political and social structures, and intellectual life.
