Career Opportunities for Majors in European Studies


The Program in European Studies provides students the opportunity to study the historical and transformations of Europe’s peoples, politics, economies, cultures and boundaries. European Studies offers an undergraduate major and minor, which enable students to take an interdisciplinary approach, with courses from history, geography, social sciences and language and literature departments. The program breaks with the traditional distinctions between the study of eastern and western Europe, enabling students to explore the broader Europe and its role in the global context. While the focus of the program is on modern (post-1700) Europe, students may choose to develop a concentration on earlier periods of European history.
