Imagine a world without philosophy, higher education, classical music, or even the United States. That’s a world without Europe. Our European Studies program allows you to study the influence of European everything on modern-day society. You’ll work across disciplines to uncover just how deep our ties to Europe are—and how these influences resonate in a globalized society. European Studies is offered as a major only.
