Modern European Studies

The Modern European Studies minor familiarizes students with the legacy of Europe from the Enlightenment to the present in politics, economics, and culture, with particular emphasis on Europe’s new role in the contemporary world.

The minor helps prepare students for:

  • Study abroad and international internships.
  • Career opportunities in international business and international law.
  • Background for students seeking governmental employment or work with non-governmental organizations (UN, Red Cross, etc.).

The minor is open to all students. This program should interest particularly those with a major in the humanities or the social sciences or in international business with a special focus on modern Europe.
