The European Studies program collaborates with partner US and European universities and the International Exchange Student Services to offer students a variety of options for learning about Europe.

West Coast Model EU

Every year, we send students on an intense and energetic weekend to the "West Coast Model EU" in Seattle. Applications are due each Fall for this opportunity which takes place each February.

Study Tour

Every Spring, students registered in EUS 390A or B go on a three week tour of the major institutions of the EU. An internship is possible following the tour. 

Research grants

The European Studies program provides grants to undergraduate and graduate students.


The European Studies program aims to help students find exchange opportunites in Europe.
