Guide for New Students
Director: Professor David Tompkins
European Studies at Carleton provides an intellectual meeting ground for students and faculty interested in exploring that collection of polities, linguistic groups, and cultures collectively known as Europe from a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. A mix of country-specific and trans-regional courses will enable students to be well-versed in the problems and developments specific to a region or culture while becoming adept at seeing continuities and exchanges that transcend boundaries. The concentration offers a number of opportunities, including the Capstone Colloquium, for students to integrate their knowledge of foreign languages and study abroad experiences directly into their coursework.
Can I major in it? A concentration is offered.
Topics explored: Art, politics, music, economics, languages, literature, and history of Europe.
How to get started: A wide range of discipline-specific courses counts toward the concentration, as well as EUST 110: Introduction to European Studies.
