Modern European Studies Concentration

This concentration allows students to pursue concentrated thematic or regional study of Europe from the Enlightenment to the present in the fields of history, politics, culture, and economics. Students participating in the concentration are strongly encouraged to undertake study abroad.

The program consists of 24 credit hours, including six hours of language beyond the six required for the University Core, to be taken in the modern European language satisfied for the Core (12 hours total in the same language). This requirement may be satisfied by civilization and culture or literature courses in the target language. Students who enter John Carroll with proficiency above the 200 level may test out of the additional six hours. Languages applied toward the concentration should be those taught at John Carroll. Other requirements include: a topical seminar in Modern European Studies at the 400 level, based on an approved existing course or a new team taught course; three courses from the Modern European Studies approved list in three departments outside the student's major (approved course list available from the coordinators); and six additional hours from the approved list. Given the importance of foundational coursework for a richer appreciation of modern European developments, students may apply up to two courses in Medieval or Early Modern European fields. Upon completion of these requirements, students will receive a certificate in Modern European Studies.

Coordinators: Dr. Julia Karolle, Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Cultures; Dr. Pamela Mason, Department of Political Science.
