Comments about Bachelor of Arts in European Studies - At the institution - Halifax - Nova Scotia

  • Objectives
    The European Studies program at Dalhousie is designed to guide students to a multidisciplinary understanding of contemporary Europe. It is not housed in any one department but is a combined effort of most departments in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the University of King's College. It encourages students to develop a broad perspective on Europe as seen through history and politics, literature and ideas, and the fine arts, with special emphasis placed on acquisition of language skills.
  • Academic Title
    Bachelor of Arts in European Studies
  • Course description
    BA 20-credit Major

    Year I

    A student would normally take five full-credit classes in the first year, meeting the distribution requirements of the BA. These classes include:
                
    1.     a writing requirement class
    2.     HIST 1004X/Y.06 (European History), or an equivalent class in a later year
    3.     a language other than English
    4.     a social sciences class
    5.     a natural science class

    Note: Completion of the King's College Foundation Year Program satisfies the first-year requirements for the European Studies 20-credit Major, with the exception of the language class and the natural science class.

    Year II to IV
                
    •     After the first year, students take a minimum of nine classes from the approved list of classes with significant European content.
    •     No more than four of these may be taken in any one department, and at least five must be taken in two other departments.
    •     At least three classes should be at the 3000 level or above, taken from at least two different departments.
    •     The 4000-level multidisciplinary seminar and the 2nd year core class are also required.
    Students should aim, with help from the European Studies Coordinator, for a balance in their classes to reflect the three general areas outlined above.
