Overview

Honours Bachelor of Arts in European Studies

The growth in transnational and transcontinental connectedness has emphasized the need for a multi-disciplinary and comparative approach to culture, society, history, politics, and trade, and has created a demand for graduates with language and management knowledge and overseas experience, particularly in Europe.

The program in European Studies will prepare you for a career in Canadian-European relations. You will concentrate on German, French, Italian or Spanish and choose among history, political science, literature, art history, administration, economics, and business courses in an area of emphasis in either culture and civilization or business. You can also gain cultural immersion in a study year in Europe.

The European Studies program is designed for students who seek a career in International Relations - especially in International Business and Administration - between Canada and Europe. It offers a combination of languages, specially designed courses in European thought, letters and history and specialization in either European Business or European Culture and Civilization.

Successful completion of the European Studies major requires proficiency in one of the following languages (French, German, Italian or Spanish). In order to demonstrate language proficiency, students have two options: they may study for a year at a European University, in the country where their chosen core language is spoken, or they may write a final research paper in the chosen core language within a required fourth year European Studies course.

It is highly recommended that students spend their third year studying at a European university, in the country where their chosen core language is spoken. The benefits of such an experience are considerable, both academically and personally. One specific academic outcome of a successful year abroad will be recognition that the student has fulfilled the program's core language requirement.
