European Studies

European Studies is an interdisciplinary program within the Walker Institute of International and Area Studies offering an undergraduate major and minor.

The major and minor are designed to provide a foundation for undergraduates in the College of Arts and Sciences who are interested in European history, cultures, geography, politics, and economics. EURO majors are required to develop a working knowledge of a European language other than English and to acquire some experience studying in a region where that language is spoken. Each student is required to develop a program of study that combines work from two or more academic departments. Academic advisement is done by the program director in consultation with faculty from the participating departments.

European Studies also sponsors lectures, conferences, student and faculty research, and other activities related to Europe and the European Union of interest to both the USC community and the general public.
