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.
