Euro FCID 2000

Transnational European Studies

Welcome to Transnational European Studies, an interdisciplinary minor at the University of Georgia!  This program enjoys the support of numerous departments throughout campus, and is the joint initiative of the Department of History and Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies.  

The capstone course for Transnational European Studies, FCID 4000, will be offered in Spring 2025.

In fall 2024, students can begin coursework for the minor by enrolling in FCID 2000: Transnational Europe, a 1.0-credit seminar scheduled for Wednesdays, 1:50-2:40, LeConte Hall. Scheduled site visits include the Georgia Museum of Art, Special Collections Library, the Museum of Natural History, and the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers. 

Through the completion of this program, undergraduate students will gain historical, cultural, political, and linguistic knowledge of Europe.  This minor encourages students to think both broadly and critically as they develop language skills and intercultural competency, exploring European cultures in their diversity and history.  Transnational European Studies is not only of value to students, but also seeks to bring together faculty from a variety of departments for an engaging intellectual exchange.

Asked what drew them to European Studies, graduates of the program cite family connections, travels to Europe, and interest in transnational subjects such as migration, the legacy of colonialism, and climate change. “The Transnational European Studies minor proved a useful supplement to my coursework while at the University of Georgia and for my research beyond. TES pushed me to take multidisciplinary courses, from comparative literature to contemporary political science, which effectively complemented my major. I would recommend TES for anyone interested in Europe's past, present, and/or future, as the minor enriched my experience at UGA and prepared me for future academic and career endeavors.”
