The European Studies MA program offers two streams and is designed to provide students with a flexible, inter- and transdisciplinary approach to European Studies that combines humanities and social science perspectives on the study of European cultures and the concept of European identities. The program promotes studies crossing boundary-lines of all types, explores European culture in its relations with other continents, and introduces students to a variety of methodological approaches in preparation for advanced doctoral research in the field of the Humanities. Both streams prepares students for careers in the arts, teaching and communication, and management, and equip them with the skills needed to play leading roles in international institutions, national administrations, cultural organisations or media groups.
THE TWO EUROPEAN STUDIES MASTER'S STREAMS:
Exploring European Identities: 3 to 4 consecutive semesters in length, program requirements to be completed mainly at Guelph, with the option of a semester abroad (in France, Germany, Italy or Spain).
Crossways in Cultural Narratives, is offered through the University of Guelph’s participation in the Erasmus Mundus Consortium. This stream is 2 years in length (2 Fall and 2 Winter semesters) and involves a compulsory mobility component, whereby the student attends 3 different universities in 3 different member-states of the Consortium.
This program is accredited by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
