Students are required to study one European language; thus, in addition to satisfying the B.A. requirement in that language, the European studies major must complete at least 12 semester hours beyond the B.A. requirement in that language. For those students focusing on an English-speaking country in Europe, only the B.A. language requirement must be met. Students focusing on English-speaking countries must take 12 hours in English related topics. The language requirement can be met at Millsaps or through study abroad. These courses do not count as electives; rather, they meet the language component requirement of the European Studies minor.
Students must satisfy the multidisciplinary component (8 semester hours).
Students will take 2 elective courses for a total of 8 semester hours from courses approved for the European Studies minor. The two elective courses may not be in the same department, and no courses used to satisfy a Compass Curriculum requirement can be used. Special Topics courses may also count as electives toward the European Studies minor, if appropriate and approved by the Director of the European Studies program. Courses approved for the European Studies minor (and major) are listed below.
