The European Studies Minor offers students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the European continent through a multi-disciplinary approach. In so doing, they can better combine their chosen major with courses that would not otherwise integrate as easily into their study track. European studies is particularly well-suited for students in the arts, philosophy, or students who are focusing on the mastery of a European language and wish to clarify the relationship of their chosen discipline to other fields. It is also helpful to students in history and political science with a concentration on non-European areas, who wish to integrate knowledge of Europe for academic, pre-professional or personal reasons.
The minor requires the completion of five courses, including at least one from each of the three following groups:
- History, philosophy, religious studies
- Anthropology, economics, political science, psychology
- Art, literature, music
