European Studies is a program within the Richard L. Walker Institute of International and Area Studies offering an undergraduate major and minor. The major is designed to provide a broadly based, interdisciplinary foundation for undergraduates in the College of Arts and Sciences who are interested in European history, cultures, geography, politics, and economics. European studies majors are required to develop a working knowledge of a second European language and to acquire some experience studying in a region where that language is spoken. Each student is required to develop a program of study that combines work from two or more academic departments. Academic advisement is done by the program director in consultation with faculty from the participating departments.
