European Studies

Explore European society and culture from a multi-disciplinary perspective. European Studies students enjoy learning about and discussing Europe's distinctive media, politics, history and arts.

The European Studies degree program is a flexible, interdisciplinary program for majors and minors who are interested in all things European, drawing upon Webster University's strengths in both the liberal arts and professional schools. Students also have the opportunity to study at one or more of Webster's European campuses. Alongside their rigorous academic training, European Studies majors will meet European leaders in government, business, media and the arts.

Graduates of this program demonstrate a broad knowledge of European affairs. They are well equipped for international careers in business, the arts and government service or graduate study in a range of professional and liberal arts fields.
