A World Beyond Our Borders

European Studies Minor

There is a world of benefits to studying other cultures, including positive attitudes toward your environment and increased job opportunities. At Salisbury University, we believe it’s important for students to view the world from multiple perspectives. The Fulton School offers five exciting area studies minors to help prepare our students for life, work and citizenship in the global 21st century, including a European studies minor.

Why Choose a European Studies Minor at Salisbury University?

We educate students in understanding the world outside the United States so that they can better serve as informed citizens in a democratic society and also as professionals in careers spanning national boundaries.

One of the most exciting aspects of the European studies minor at SU is its study abroad component:

  • When minors do a semester abroad program with our institutional partners, students have the ability to complete the minor, in most cases, with one semester at SU and one semester abroad. This makes it easy for you to choose a minor and experience a full semester abroad, no matter what your major is.
  • Students who choose to spend a semester studying abroad at the foreign partner institution take SU courses, earn an SU-applicable GPA and pay SU prices.
  • Students who spend a semester studying at an SU foreign partner institution may earn up to four courses/16 credits because these courses are considered SU courses, not transfer courses. They are simply delivered off campus by faculty of a foreign partner institution.

For students interested in pursuing careers that stretch beyond our borders, SU also offers an international studies major.
