Welcome to the KU's European Studies program

The KU’s European Studies program focuses on European cultural tradition and includes linguistics, literary studies, and cultural studies. It provides students with fundamental knowledge of cultural similarities and differences in Europe, the way European cultures see themselves and are seen by others, and the links between European and non-European cultures. Prospective students should have a strong interest in linguistics, literary studies, and cultural studies, which they will develop through increasingly independent academic research. In addition, applicants should be particularly interested in improving and expanding their foreign language skills.
