Program Information

West European Studies (WEST) offers a Master of Arts degree in West European Studies, and two dual degree programs: a Master of Arts and a Master of Business Administration (M.A./M.B.A.) with the Kelly School of Business, and a Master of Arts and a Master of Public Affairs (M.A./M.P.A.) with the School of Public and Environmental Affairs. The West European Studies master's program offers a flexible, yet rigorous approach to the study of modern Europe that combines courses in the social sciences, humanities, and languages to give students broad understanding of the politics, economics, history, and cultures of the countries of Western Europe and the European Union, while allowing the student to tailor the program to their interests. Students may focus on a particular country or region in Western Europe, or on the European Union. The dual degrees add a level of professional training. M.A. graduates have in-depth knowledge about Western Europe and are prepared to work in a wide variety of positions in the public and private sector. Students may also choose to follow the master's degree with advanced graduate studies.

WEST also offers a Graduate Certificate and a Ph.D. minor for doctoral students.
