Course content

Since 1993, the European Studies program has brought together a dynamic group of scholars and students interested in European languages, cultures, histories, politics and business. European Studies offers an undergraduate Honours major and minor within the B.A. program. It also offers an M.A. with a focus on Exploring European Identities and participates in the Erasmus Mundus M.A. program, Crossways in Cultural Narratives, offered in collaboration with seven European partner universities.

This innovative interdisciplinary programme combines humanities and social science perspectives to the study of Europe, both past and present. It aims to provide students with a flexible, interdisciplinary approach to European Studies that allows for specialization within a core discipline and promotes expertise in European, culture, history, contemporary politics and society, and languages. The faculty for this interdisciplinary programme is drawn from several Schools and Departments, spanning two Colleges, the College of Arts and College of Social and Applied Human Sciences. Faculty members have research interests in such diverse areas as European identities (gender, minorities, national), youth cultures, literature, music and art in comparative perspective, Western philosophy, EU governance and policies, European citizenship and migration policies. Students who graduate from this programme will be equipped to pursue further study at the PhD level in an interdisciplinary or a single-discipline programme, or embark on careers in national and international organizations that focus on Europe, and in companies that do business with Europe.

Programme of Study
The programme includes a major research paper which may either concentrate on a single discipline or be interdisciplinary in its focus. In addition, students may choose to spend a semester at university in Europe for research and cultural immersion. The course requirements include two core courses. Research Methods is designed to introduce students to advanced research in European studies. European Identities is intended to familiarize students with historical and contemporary ideas of the ‘nation’ and of ‘Europe’, and relationships of these ideas to identity, from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students may select electives from other European Studies courses (e.g. Europe and the Discourse of Civilization; European Integration and the EU) or courses that focus on Europe from other programmes.
