The program curriculum is designed to provide disciplinary breadth with cross-disciplinary expertise in a specialty of the student’s own choosing. In consultation with the director of EUS, students select a major focus and specific courses that will fulfill the requirements for the major.
- This focus might consist of a thematic or comparative topic (such as culture and society in the 1920s, the 1960s, or the era of the French Revolution), a regional or sub-regional topic (e.g., European integration, the Iberian Peninsula) or the culture and society of a particular nation (e.g., France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain). In addition to the core requirements, majors enroll in relevant courses in the Social Sciences and Humanities, and take a foreign language of the student’s choice.
- Most European Studies majors also participate in one of the Vanderbilt University study abroad programs in Europe and/or reside in the McTyeire International House on campus. Both experiences have proven to be immensely useful in preparing students for future careers with international awareness. The EUS minor entails 18 hours of coursework with the usual concentration and distribution requirements. Additional options allow students to combine their EUS major with one of the language and literature majors (French and European Studies, German and European Studies, Italian and European Studies, Russian and European Studies, Spanish and European Studies, or Spanish, Portuguese, and European Studies).
