Europe, like other major regions of the globe, has long been a significant focus of study at the University of Toronto. In recognition of the major role played by the European region on the global stage, and the importance of understanding the continent in a comprehensive way, the Munk School of Global Affairs offers an undergraduate major program in European Studies and a minor program in European Union Studies.
Drawing on the expertise of thirteen departments, the program is designed for students who desire the linguistic competence, the cultural comprehension, and the specialized knowledge necessary to operate effectively in the “new” Europe. The major provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to focus on the region through a wide variety of courses and disciplines. It offers preparation for further specialized study at the graduate level, or for work either in Europe itself or within a Canadian-based organization dealing with Europe. Students may also take a minor program in European Union Studies, which consists of four full credits.
