European Studies

The Max Kade Center for European Studies has a rich tradition of offering undergraduates major and minor options in the study of European affairs. The European Studies major (EUS) was designed for students who want to broaden their awareness of Europe and to prepare for international careers or advanced study.  In 2006, on its 25th anniversary as an academic unit, the Center for European Studies was renamed the Max Kade Center for European and German Studies and was expanded to include a central focus on the role of Germany within its European and transatlantic contexts with the aid of a major grant from the Max Kade Foundation in New York.

Three EUS students participated in the International Summer School on Equality in Utrecht in July 2014. This was the second in a series of three summer schools on the themes of the French Revolution (liberty, equality, fraternity). This project is a joint initiative of the Utrecht Network, coordinated by Utrecht University in Utrecht, The Netherlands, under project coordinator Gerrit Dielissen, a former visiting professor at the Max Kade Center. The summer school is multinational and interdisciplinary in character. It consists of interactive lectures, student-led workshops, study visits, and dialogues with local actors. The school offers tuition, accommodation and full board, course materials and excursions.
