European Studies is an interdisciplinary initiative of faculty from UC's College of Arts and Sciences that provides opportunities for studying the multifaceted nature of a changing Europe - its history; its languages; its cultural, political, economic, and social fabric; and its borders.
European Studies (EUST) was created in 2000 with the generous grant of $150,000 from the Charles Phelps Taft Memorial Fund as well as the support of the provost and the dean of Arts and Sciences. Since then, a collective of interested faculty from History, German Studies, Romance Languages & Literatures, Political Science, English & Comparative Literature, Classics, Sociology, and other fields related to the study of Europe has developed a dynamic and growing program that has garnered highly competitive national and regional funding, including grants from the Ohio Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
We offer courses and certificates at the Undergraduate and Graduate levels. Our courses and other events are open to all who are interested in European Studies. For more information on the program please contact Dr. Sunnie Rucker-Chang, Director of European Studies and Assistant Professor of Slavic.
