Why European Studies?
Student Exchanges in Europe
Gain valuable experience, learn a new language and experience life from a whole new perspective. Over the past few years, students have done internships and exchanges all over Europe, from Poland to Belgium and Italy. We also offer grants and funding opportunities.
Research and Academic Excellence
The European Studies Program at the University of Victoria is at the forefront of European research in Canada. We are currently a European Union Centre of Excellence (in consortium with the University of Toronto), a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, and have the honour of counting three Jean Monnet Chairs amongst our faculty.
Interdisciplinary and flexible
We offer over 100 electives through 17 different department, from History in Art and Languages to Politics. So whether you are doing a Minor, a General or a Concentration, you have plenty to choose from!
For students pursuing an International career, we offer exciting opportunities that will boost your understanding and help your résumé stand out.
From hot topics, like the euro-crisis and European integration, to new ways of looking at European history, we regularly host conferences, symposiums, and lectures that bring prominent European and global scholars to UVic. Check out our news and events!
Dr. Stefan Seidendorf of the Franco-German Institute in Ludwigsburg, Germany is visiting UVic on January 24th and 25th and will be presenting two seminars: January 24th and 25th.
