Minor in European Studies

Why minor in European Studies?

The interdisciplinary European Studies Program is housed in the Center for Global & International Studies, which also provides a home for Middle East Studies and the Undergraduate Certificate in South Asian Studies. European Studies offers an intellectually engaging minor for students interested in exploring the languages, cultures, history, politics, and economies of Europe and individual European countries. Students integrate the minor most frequently with their study of Global & International Studies, a modern European language, History, Political Science, and English. The program provides students opportunities to attend lectures and panel discussions by leading scholars, conduct research, study abroad, and complete internships, all of which help prepare them for careers in a rapidly changing world and global economy. The European Studies Program also serves as a point of contact and organization for College and University faculty with expertise in European studies, promoting both faculty and student expertise by collaborating with local, regional, and national organizations and institutions.
