Concentration in Transnational European Studies

The Concentration in Transnational European Studies is an optional track available to students enrolled in the supplemental major in Global Affairs in the Keough School. It is designed for students seeking to understand the complex interplay between political, economic, and cultural forces in Europe and its engagement with the rest of the world. It is a course of study that takes Europe in a traditional sense seriously but pays particular attention to the dynamic flows of people, politics, commerce, and cultures that are so characteristic of Europe today.

The concentration features flexible one-credit courses as points of entry, includes coursework in European institutions and how they work in Europe and the United States, convenes special seminars in Transnational European Studies in Washington DC and in major European capitals, including Berlin, and requires a final capstone essay or project. 

Europe is changing, and its changes will have profound global implications. Understand what is going on!
