The European Union Center offers an interdisciplinary graduate minor for students interested in pursuing area studies along with their primary field. Graduate minors are excellent ways to develop focused familiarity/competence with a particular topic in complement with what a student is learning in their main degree program. The graduate minor caters to a variety of students from a variety of programs, including:
- PhD programs in a number of departments
- Professional schools, such as law, business, and education
- Professional degree programs, such as urban and regional planning
Interested students should first speak with an academic advisor in their home department or degree-granting school to confirm eligibility for the Graduate Minor in EU Studies. Eligible applicants should then meet with the EU Center’s Academic Programs Coordinator (send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org), and prepare to:
- Complete a registration form with the EU Center
- Submit a Graduate College Student Petition form to the College
- Submit a detailed course plan showing the meeting of minor requirements before graduating
- Explore all the EU Center has to offer, such as FLAS fellowships, events and funding opportunities
