Center for Global & International Studies
College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

The European Studies minor can be combined with majors in other departments, programs, and schools: Business, modern European languages & literatures, History, Philosophy, and Global & International Studies, for example. We provide our students with personalized advising, interdisciplinary flexibility, exciting course offerings, opportunities to conduct research, frequent co-curricular activities, and diverse options for studying and completing internships abroad. Studying with KU faculty in the broader disciplines such as social sciences, humanities, the arts, and business, will enable students to increase their awareness and understanding of Europe’s past, present, and future and its significant role in our increasingly globalized world.

Interested students should meet with Dr. Lorie A. Vanchena, Academic Director, European Studies; please contact her at Laura Leonard, CLAS-SAS Advising Specialist,handles academic advising for the European Studies Program (
