Learning Goals

Students will develop a historically informed, contextual, and interdisciplinary understanding of modern Europe.
The major and minor 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. With their adviser, Majors will develop an individual concentration. All Majors will demonstrate proficiency in at least one European language other than English. All students are required to complete an approved study abroad program in Europe of at least six weeks.
