Program in European Studies:
With the European region rising in importance in politics/ economics, history, and culture in the world stage, the demand for individuals with expertise of the European region has increased. In line with the trend, students at the undergraduate level have increasingly been interested in courses related to the European region, thus, it has become imperative to systematically formulate a major to cope with such interest. As a result, SNU will utilize courses in College of Humanities (French Language and Literature Major, German Language and Literature Major, Western History Major) and in College of Social Sciences (International Relations Major, Political Science Major, Anthropology Major, Geography Major) that already have connections with the European region. By encouraging students to pursue such courses, we aim to cultivate individuals with expert knowledge of the region.
Interdisciplinary Major application period is 2~3 weeks before the start of the semester (same time period as that of Minor application).
“Those who have completed 3 semesters or more, and have earned 36 credits or more” and are students of the participating Majors.
※ Participating Majors of Interdisciplinary European Program: (from College of Social Sciences) International Relations Major, Political Science Major, Anthropology Major, Geography Major, and (from College of Humanities) French Language and Literature Major, German Language and Literature Major, Western History Major.
