The Discipline

European Studies is an interdisciplinary field that focuses on Europe's rich cultural history and its ongoing contributions to the modern world. Scholars in the field come from across the university, researching everything from medieval art and literature to twenty-first-century politics and economics. European Studies majors primarily take courses in the humanities and social sciences, developing strong foreign language skills, a deep understanding of European history, culture, and current affairs, and a commitment to global citizenship. Students also acquire advanced and transferable skills in research, analysis, communication, networking and collaboration.

Career Opportunities

A bachelor's degree in European Studies can lead to a wide range of fulfilling careers. Recent graduates from BYU's program have found employment in areas such as diplomacy, business, and higher education. The major also provides excellent preparation for graduate studies in politics, public service, business, law, medicine, journalism, history, and literature.
