The European Studies Program is designed to develop an interdisciplinary expertise on modern Europe. Students in the Program can acquire a working fluency in one of the major official languages (in addition to English) of the European Union: French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish. Language instruction emphasizes written and oral communication. To ensure that graduates in European Studies have the historical understanding and the specialized knowledge, as well as the linguistic competence, necessary to comprehend contemporary Europe, a balanced syllabus is presented: core courses on the political evolution of modern Europe and on the economics and politics of European integration are complemented by choices from a rich group of courses offered by the twelve academic departments participating in the Program.
This is a limited enrolment program open only to those who earn a mark of at least 70% in one of the required first-year language courses and who also successfully complete at least 4 full courses. European Studies Program Web Site: http://www.library.utoronto.ca/www/european_studies
