European Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Europe. This gives students the opportunity to explore a dynamic, multicultural world region without being confined to the perspective of one discipline. The program provides broad historical background in the political, economic, social and cultural compositio of today’s Europe, while setting the study of Europe within a global context. This depth of study allows students to discern and gain insights from multiple disciplines that are most beneficial to their career goals. This is an ideal program for student whose interests and career objectives are in areas such as business, journalism, entertainment, government service, law or education, as well as those who plan to study some aspect of the European experience at the graduate level. It would also be a good choice for students seeking teaching credentials.
