east european studies

Boston College offers an academic minor in East European Studies as an interdisciplinary program for undergraduates. The Program encompasses faculty and courses from across the University and spans the entire border of “western” Europe, from Russia, through central Europe, to southeastern Europe (the Balkans).

With academic advisement from participating faculty, students can shape the East European Studies minor to fit usefully with their academic major and with their plans for work or advanced study. The Program prepares students for careers in diplomacy, journalism, business, government, social service, as well as graduate academic or professional study.

Students who complete the minor will work toward proficiency in an East European language related to the region and attain valuable knowledge and skills that only an interdisciplinary program can provide.
