Program in European Studies

The Program in European Studies offers an inventive framework for thinking about Europe, and working with our strong faculty in Romance Studies.


A cluster of courses in European Studies for students interested in European issues, majors in any track of Romance Studies, as well as those pursuing a concentration in Europe through ICAS. Designed as lecture with discussion, they examine debates of critical attention today through close readings of a variety of major European texts across media. Taught in English, they also provide a chance for preceptorials in the relevant Romance languages. All contribute to work in the multilingual Humanities.
