Welcome to the Center For European Studies at Rutgers
The Center's mission is to promote research and teaching on modern Europe at Rutgers and to foster intellectual exchanges between members of the Rutgers community and European scholars and institutions. The CES sponsors an undergraduate major and minor in European Studies and hosts a Graduate Associates Program, bringing together an interdisciplinary group of graduate students with research interests in Europe. Every year, the CES hosts a rich assortment of public lectures, conferences and outreach activities that foster deeper understanding of European history, politics and culture.
CES in 2014-15 is the recipient of a fourth grant from the German Information Center of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany. Watch for our Fall of the Wall programming funded by this award, coming in the first half of November.
Please explore our website, which details our activities and provides information on upcoming events. We hope you will join us in supporting European Studies at Rutgers.
