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 Director Nancy Sinkoff is Associate Professor of History and Jewish Studies. 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.
