Overview 

In the tradition of the liberal arts, the European Cultural Studies concentration integrates and unifies many discrete aspects of European culture.  The ECS curriculum is multi-disciplinary.  Faculty are drawn from the spectrum of areas of study in the liberal arts and provide students with a broad perspective of what constitutes “culture” and the skills to keep abreast with current and future events.  Students achieve a well-rounded view of the literature, art, history, politics, and philosophy of Europe since the Middle Ages.

A degree in European Cultural Studies can lead in many directions. Some graduates have gone on to professional school (e.g., law, business, and even medical school). Some have enrolled in graduate programs in literature or in one or the related areas studied (for example, history, politics, and fine arts). Some have found positions in museums, international business, and school systems.

The department link contains career-related resources, specifically information about study abroad.
