Cynthia Klima, Coordinator (Welles Hall 206C)

The European Studies Minor is designed for students who desire an interdisciplinary study of Europe, from Great Britain to Russia, and from Scandinavia to the Balkan regions. Courses are wide-ranging, encompassing various European languages, history, politics, philosophy, and cultures. The European Union and non-affiliated countries will continue to influence political relations, climate change, and the economy for the foreseeable future. The choice of courses is wide-ranging and will give the student of European Studies well-rounded knowledge of a continent with almost 10% of the world’s population and over 200 languages.
