International Studies (European Studies)

I am Interested in This Major

European studies is an emphasis area in the International Studies major. Students who are studying French, Spanish, German, Italian or Russian may wish to select European studies as their emphasis area. The student examines the politics, culture, history and geography of the European continent, with a focus on the country whose native language is being studied by the student. Given the multidisciplinary approach to this degree, students take courses that are specifically geared to a better understanding of the culture, history, and language of a given country, as well as a better understanding of the entire continent of Europe. The program prepares students for graduate study and careers in academia, teaching, law, business, public policy, humanitarian aid, non-profit organizations, government, and diplomacy.
