Major in European Studies

Students must complete one introductory course:

  • EURS 1000: The Idea of Europe
  • HIST 2350: History of Modern Europe—Enlightenment to the Fall of Soviet Communism

Students must satisfy the language component:

  • Students are required to study one European language; thus, in addition to satisfying the B.A. requirement in that language, the European studies major must complete at least 12 semester hours beyond the B.A. requirement in that language. For those students focusing on an English-speaking country in Europe, only the B.A. language requirement must be met. Students focusing on English-speaking countries must take 12 hours in English related topics. The language requirement can be met at Millsaps or through study abroad. These courses do not count as electives; rather, they meet the language component requirement of the European Studies major/minor.

Students are required to study abroad for a minimum of four semester hours.

Students must complete the senior seminar colloquium and comprehensive exams:

  • EURS 4900: European Studies Colloquium
  • Comprehensive Exam

Students must satisfy the multidisciplinary component (20 sem. hours). Students will take 20 semester hours (32 in the case of students focusing on an English speaking country), beyond those described above, from a list of elective courses below. No more than 12 semester hours may be in the same department. No more than four semester hours may be from the Compass Curriculum. European Studies majors may include one appropriate Compass course among the five electives required for the major. They should consult the director of the program to determine which Compass courses are appropriate. Compass courses may not be counted among the two electives required for the European Studies minor. No more than eight semester hours of language courses, beyond those that are required for the European Studies major, may be counted as elective courses toward the major. Students must take courses from at least two of the College's academic divisions. Note: with the ap- proval of the director of the European Studies program, appropriate.
