Undergraduate Programs in European Studies
Europe constitutes a vital part of our cultural heritage and has been a source of both great creativity and massive devastation in the modern era. The European Studies program seeks to enhance students' understanding of the historical evolution and contemporary dimensions of European society, politics, and culture. It aims as well to train students in an area of growing national need and professional opportunity. It offers an interdepartmental major that furnishes students with substantive knowledge of western European society through two approaches. First, it provides a solid foundation in one of the continental Western European languages. Second, it encourages comparative inquiry across boundaries of time, nation, and scholarly disciplines.
Offered jointly by the Departments of Modern Languages and History, the European Studies major is offered as a B.A. degree.
