X--Degree Programs, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

European Studies (EURS)

Interdisciplinary Program.

Coordinator: Paola Mayer, School of Languages and Literatures, Ext. 8562.

The European Studies program is designed for students who seek a career in International Relations - especially in International Business and Administration - between Canada and Europe. It offers a carefully structured and educationally sound combination of languages, specially designed courses in European Thought, Letters and History, and is enriched by a Study and Work Year Abroad.

The program's entry requirement is an OAC credit or proficiency equivalence in the chosen language; the required language knowledge can be acquired at the university level or at other appropriate institutions, e.g. the Goethe Institut; this, however, may delay graduation by 1 to 2 semesters.

Although the program is designed to start in semester 1, it is possible to transfer into it at a later date provided there is proof of the required language proficiency, and provided approval from the program coordinator and the departmental advisor has been obtained. Normal program entry is in the Fall semester; admission is possible in the Winter semester for internal transfer students.

The B.A. requirements of 1.50 credits from 2 different subject areas within the Colleges of Arts and Social Sciences plus 2 courses in natural and/or mathematical sciences must be fulfilled within the first 3 semesters.

The European Studies core courses are open to students from other programs; however, the two areas of emphasis and the Study and Work Year Abroad are not.

Major (Honours Program)

A minimum of 13.00 credits is required, including:

Core Requirements

Language Core Requirements

The required language courses in French, German, Italian or Spanish are intended to provide the students with sufficient fluency to pursue part of their studies abroad. However, all of our partner universities offer native language courses for foreigners. Although the core requires only 1 language, it is strongly recommended that students acquire competence in more than 1 foreign language.

Study and Work Abroad

Year 3 or year 4 will provide students with the opportunity to continue their studies abroad. Students will select up to 6.00 credits which can be included in the area of emphasis, as electives, or both. They are subject to approval by the program coordinator and the departmental advisor. Courses taken in Europe will not count towards the specialization average.

A practicum is recommended as part of the Study and Work Year Abroad. It is however, optional. The practicum should follow the Study Year Abroad and may occupy part of semester 7. Results must be documented through a report which may be written in the language of the country of the practicum and which will be graded. Topics will be chosen by the students in consultation with their practicum supervisor, the program coordinator and the departmental advisor. The decision as to whether the student has been successful lies with the practicum supervisor and the departmental advisor. If there is no work available abroad, students may do their practicum with an international firm in Canada, or replace it with two courses from their Area of Emphasis.
