European Studies Minor

The European Studies minor is for students with strong European interests or who plan to study in Europe on an EAP or OAP program but also those who seek to complement their major with the study of Europe as a political, cultural, and economic entity. To receive a minor in European Studies, a student must complete seven four-unit courses (twenty-eight units) at least five of which must be upper-division courses--these courses may not double count toward a student's major. Students plan their minor in consultation with a European Studies faculty advisor. All courses taken for the minor must be taken for a letter grade, and must be passed with a C- or better. A maximum of two 199 or 198 courses, and a maximum of three Study Abroad Courses may be petitioned to fulfill minor requirements.

Language Proficiency

ALL minors must demonstrate basic proficiency in a single European language other than English by completing four quarters of language instruction (or equivalent).
