European Studies is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the politics, culture, economy, society and history of Europe, and on Europe’s place in the world. Through consultation with a faculty advisor or the program director, students choosing to minor in European Studies may design their coursework to focus on their own interests by drawing from multiple disciplines including communications, economics, history, political science, literature, sociology, philosophy, the arts and more. The program also encourages students to complete some of their coursework through study abroad in Europe.

Questions regarding coursework for a European Studies minor may be directed to the Program Director. Questions regarding minor requirements or may be directed to the Program Coordinator.
