European Studies engages you in the cultures and languages of Europe. The program consists of core courses specifically about Europe, courses in a European language other than English, and a number of electives. Students are also required to study abroad to experience cultures and languages first-hand.
Point of Pride
The European Studies program at Illinois State is unique in scope and content. Students can study all of Europe and focus on one region, country, culture, or theme. The program is international and interdisciplinary. With the help of advising, students can construct their own course of study.
