European Studies Courses

An quick overview of European Studies at UVic

The European Studies Program offers three core courses: EUS 100 (Fall), EUS 200 (Spring), and EUS 311 (Spring).

In addition, we offer the EU Study Tour, UVic's largest field school, which takes students from across Canada to visit the institutions of the European Union and beyond (it occurs annually in May and is done for credit, through EUS 390A).

We also offer EUS 400, and, occasionally, a special topics course (EUS 490) and a directed experiential learning course (EUS 495).

The EUS courses are available to all UVic students, not only to those wishing to obtain the EUS Minor or Political Science students who pursue the Option in European Studies.

Students do not necessarily need to complete EUS 100 before EUS 200 or EUS 311. EUS 200 or other relevant coursework is recommended before completing EUS 400.

Prior to travelling to Europe to participate in the EU Study Tour (EUS 390A) students are normally expected to have taken EUS311/POLI311 and another core course or relevant elective course. 

EUS 100 - Fall

Introduction to European studies

The European Union consists of 27 European countries. The continent has a rich and varied history as the birthplace of many important ideologies, art forms, and political institutions.

This course gives a broad introduction to the wide range of topics explored by the European Studies Program, starting with a ‘Tour of Europe’. In class, we examine different European countries on their own, as well as in relation to each other and to the EU. In doing so, we focus on key issues and contemporary thinkers associated with the study of European integration. This is an interdisciplinary course, including the areas of politics, history, language, law, and economics. Some topics include the history of modern Europe, the debates and ideas behind the creation of the EU, and the cultural and political ramifications of ‘East-West’ legacies in Europe. The course also examines a number of current events and recent challenges facing the EU, to include the debt crisis, identity politics, and issues surrounding further political integration.

EUS 200 - Spring

Introduction to European cultures and identities


This course explores the evolving and interconnected cultural dialogues of European societies as they relate to one other and the world at large. The particular experiences and cultural innovations of each European society contributes a piece to a puzzle, which considered together paints a narrative of at times contrasting and at times complementary identities.

We will consider, for instance, how Ancient Greek ideas of democracy were enriched by Roman notions of cosmopolitanism, how Mediaeval European societies were enriched by interactions with Jewish, Muslim and Christian cultures on the Iberian Peninsula, and how European sciences arose in conjunction with artistic developments in Renaissance Italy. Throughout the course, issues such as religious intolerance, imperialism and colonialism are critically examined, as well as the collaborative endeavours that are at the root of the relative prosperity of Europe today.

EUS 400 - Fall

The European Legacy


Course Description

You use the term “Western culture,” but do you know what that really means? What are its defining values and where did they come from? In this interdisciplinary seminar course, you will explore the roots of western culture in the narratives of shared values that accompanied the historical emergence of something called “Europe”, and identify the legacy of these narratives in some of the most pressing issues of our times.

Our inquiry will revolve around four mutually implicit, double-edged themes:

1) faith/tolerance; 2) the value of the individual; 3) cosmopolitanism; 4) knowledge as universal truth. For each of these, we will examine historical sources and seek out its ongoing operation in current events. Weekly synchronous seminars and asynchronous online forums will provide an opportunity for you to share ideas, review readings and integrate course material toward a final term paper on a topic of your choice.

Intended Learning Outcomes

In this course you will gain a more complex, critical and historical understanding of the roots of western culture, the nature and source of its defining values and how they continue to operate in our present. You will be challenged to become more attentive readers, better writers, and more critical thinkers and cultural observers. You will have the opportunity to devote the semester to developing a research paper on a topic of your own choice, including developing an abstract and bibliography, and presenting your work to colleagues.

EUS 390A - Summer

Directed studies in Europe I & II: EU Field School

EUS 390A/B is a directed studies course; this can either be the EU Field School, or a special project approved by the EUS Director. Every May, EUS 390A/B is offered as the EU Field School, which starts in Brussels, and takes students on a tour through the key sites of European Union institutions and civil society organisations. Students will engage with representatives of the EU’s administrative and political leadership, such as the European Commission, Parliament, Court of Justice, and Central Bank, along with other European organizations such as NATO, the European Court of Human Rights, and the Canadian Mission to the EU. The Tour is not simply an accredited course, it is a full immersion into European history, culture, and political formation, a program for self-directed and independent study.through various important EU institutions, and gives students an opportunity to have “face to face” contact and dialogue with presenters and seminar leaders from the ranks of those actively involved in the day to day work of the EU. Students will also meet with representatives of other European institutions, diplomatic representations to the EU (including Canada), policy think tanks, and civil society organizations.
