European Studies

European Studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to give students a comprehensive view of Europe, past and present, from a variety of perspectives. This program provides a solid grounding in the liberal arts and is excellent preparation for advanced study in graduate or professional school. Majors are encouraged to study abroad.

  • Knowledge of the key factors shaping European history and culture;
  • Awareness of the variety of cultural influences that shape European society including (but not limited to) such fields as art, politics, literature, religion, and philosophy;
  • The capacity to produce written and oral analysis of aspects of European culture;
