Europe is an area of great importance in, and to, the world through its cultural heritage; its political, economic, military, and religious histories; its literature, music, film, and philosophy; as well as in its recent emergence as a new kind of international form through the European Union.
Boston University’s European Studies Program combines a unifying regional focus with a multidisciplinary approach, enabling students to bring together courses that develop their language skills; social, historical, and cultural knowledge; and political, economic, and international relations expertise. Combined with a study abroad program in Europe and a capstone interdisciplinary course in the senior year, students are able to integrate their European academic and cultural experiences with their disciplinary interests.
The European interdisciplinary studies program offers a ten-course major and a six-course minor, both drawing on the resources of thirteen CAS departments and on Boston University Study Abroad programs in England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, and Switzerland.
If you have questions about the major or minor in European Studies, please contact Area Studies Advisor Victoria Puyat at email@example.com or (617) 358-6440.
