BA in European Studies
We live in an interdependent world. Daily headlines, national policies, and regional economics are shaped by people all around the globe. World forces affect our academic choices, career opportunities, and shopping lists -- even the water we drink and the air we breathe.
As more businesses and organizations expand globally, we as individuals are going global, too, surfing the Web and e-mailing across the seas to pursue our personal and professional goals.
Following this trend, international studies provides a context for studying social and natural sciences, business and commerce, the humanities, fine arts, and foreign languages within a global context.
An Interdisciplinary Program
Webster's interdisciplinary International Studies program is designed to give students specialized and general global knowledge, second language skills, and significant international experience.
Each student will complete the core courses, select a second language, and study abroad or complete an internship (as approved by the Director of the Center for International Education).
You can choose to major with an emphasis in either Asia, Europe, Latin America or International Human Rights. Or you can work with the CIE Director to develop an individual emphasis in another area of study.
The European Studies major explores European society and culture from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Students will become familiar with Europe's distinctive history and politics, its commerce and media, and its contributions to the arts, literature, and ideas. Majors will demonstrate a solid grounding in at least one European language and will spend a term of study at one or more of Webster's European campuses.
