Explore European society and culture from a multi-disciplinary perspective. European studies students enjoy learning about and discussing Europe's distinctive history, cultures, economies, and fine arts.

The European studies degree program is a flexible, interdisciplinary program for majors and minors who are interested in all things European, drawing upon Webster University's strengths in both the liberal arts and professional schools.
