European Studies at the University of Guelph

Since 1993, the European Studies program has brought together a dynamic group of scholars and students interested in European languages, cultures, histories, politics and business.  European Studies offers an undergraduate Honours major and minor within the B.A. program. It also offers an M.A. with a focus on Exploring European Identities and participates in the Erasmus Mundus M.A. program, Crossways in Cultural Narratives, offered in collaboration with seven European partner universities. For more on these three components of the program:

Undergraduate Studies (B.A.)

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
