What is the North Carolina Journal of European Studies?

The North Carolina Journal of European Studies is dedicated to showcasing the analytical, critical, and creative work of UNC undergraduate students on issues related to contemporary Europe. Published on an annual basis, the journal seeks submissions from across the university’s academic departments.

The founding mission of the Center for European Studies’ Undergraduate Journal is student development. Ensuring that our undergraduates have pathways to publication and academic success is crucial to the development of the curriculum in general, and the EURO major in particular. Eventually, continued success and publication of the journal will help elevate our curriculum to the very top of undergraduate academics on the European Union, European histories and cultures, and the transatlantic relationship in the United States.

Interested in submitting work to the NCJES?
