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. There is an Honours program and a 120 credit hour Major. Because it is already a multidisciplinary program, European Studies cannot be combined with other subjects to form a combined honours degree.
