EURO Major Square LogoIf you are an undergraduate interested in understanding the forces of politics and culture that shape Europe today, consider a unique degree program and major in Contemporary European Studies (EURO).

As a EURO major, you will deepen your understanding of European issues and current events framed in an academic framework, while developing advanced proficiency in a modern European language.

Students who wish to specialize in modern Europe within a particular discipline (such as Political Science, Economics, or History) are especially encouraged to pursue EURO as a second major.  You will have special access to the many resources of UNC’s Center for European Studies, a United States Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center and a European Union Center of Excellence funded by the European Commission.

The EURO degree’s interdisciplinary structure and extensive language training prepare you to join a network of students who have continued on to graduate studies and/or an international career in public policy, government agencies, NGOs, and transatlantic companies.
