European Studies

Students can minor (but not major) in European studies at Centre College. The European studies minor is region-specific, interdisciplinary (inviting participation from across the three divisions), and requires students to study, in depth, both the parts as well as the whole of Europe. Students think about questions of nationhood and identity, learn at least two languages spoken in the region, and study how modern European societies, cultures and institutions have developed (independently and collectively) since the early stages of World War II. Ideally students will live a full term Strasbourg, the European capital located on the border of two nation-states. While Centre College’s curriculum encourages the study of various aspects of European civilization, the European Studies minor will provide the opportunity to examine the European Union in a critical manner.
