European Studies

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

This major is designed for students who are keenly interested in Europe, in particular those who are drawn by its rich cultural heritage and the major changes occurring on a social, economic, political, and spiritual level. Bringing together European language, history, and cultural courses provides a focus for this interest and is intended to prepare students to play a significant role in Europe or in fields relating to Europe. Moreover, understanding Europe represents a critical factor in understanding North America, as much of North American culture is rooted and grounded in European civilization, including ideas on government, human dignity, and human rights. In addition, the presence of the Christian faith, which has permeated European history and society, as well as reactions against it in more modern times, represent important areas to explore and understand for students seeking to interact with today’s world in the context of their faith. No matter what their focus, this major helps equip students to confidently fulfil the University’s mission and God’s calling on their lives in a European setting.
