Why European Studies?

European Studies enables students to experience the culture, heritage, and history of Europe.

Europe provides a fascinating area of study--a complex blend of states with a rich history of rivalries and alliances, obvious similarities and glaring distinctions, with religion playing a major role in shaping its art, culture, philosophy, and law.

TWU’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences offers a multidisciplinary major in European Studies for students interested in Europe’s social, economic, political, and spiritual aspects. It’s a stimulating interdisciplinary research environment for both faculty and students, promoting academic excellence in research, publications, and teaching on European issues. There are numerous travel study opportunities in places such as London, Geneva, Rome, and Paris. The European Studies major offers three streams of study: language, history, and English literature and fine arts.
