Students in any college may register for an undergraduate minor in European Studies. The minor provides a coherent structure for students with an interest in interdisciplinary study in the field of European studies which will complement their major in a traditional department.
Completed registration forms, with a copy of transcript, should be submitted to the Cornell Institute for European Studies in 120 Uris Hall.
The European Studies Minor has three tracks:
-- European Politics, Economics and Society
-- Modern European History
-- European Culture
1. Competence in at least one modern European language, Romance, Germanic, or Slavic language.
For example, completion of a fifth semester or equivalent with a grade of at least B-, or demonstration of an advanced level of competence in an oral proficiency interview test, where available.
2. Completion of the interdisciplinary core course:
3. Completion of one course in modern post-1789 European history
4. Three additional courses in any of the three areas, which may include a 400-level senior seminar.
-- Only two courses may be used to satisfy requirements for both the Major and the Concentration.
-- Courses taken abroad may be applied to the minor if they are approved for Cornell credit. Undergraduates in the College of Arts and Sciences can major in European Studies through the independent major or College Scholar programs.
