The College of Liberal Arts, Education and Human Development administers the interdisciplinary Minor in European Studies. The purpose of this Minor is to acquaint the student with historical and current knowledge of the European region, peoples, societies, economies, and cultures. The Minor signifies students have a basic and general understanding of this part of the world.

The requirements of this Minor are as follows:

International Study Programs

Students are encouraged to participate in one or more of the many programs offered by the University of New Orleans in various European settings. Among the study-abroad opportunities open to students are summer, semester, or academic year programs at the University of Innsbruck, Austria; at the Ezra Pound Center in Brunnenburg Castle in the Italian Alps; at Charles University in Prague, the Czech Republic; with the Glories of France program in Montpellier, France; at the University of Orléans, France; with the MICEFA program in Paris, France; at the Universitat Jaume I, Castellon de la Plana, Spain; Universidad de Salamanca, Spain; with the Greece Honors Tour; and with Middlesex University in London, England. Some of these require facility with the local language, but others provide courses in English as well. Many of the course hours undertaken in connection with these programs will apply toward the European Studies minor.
