As part of the Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry, it draws on the expertise of members of staff in the Faculties of Arts & Humanities, Social & Historical Sciences, and the School of Slavonic & Eastern European Studies (SSEES).
Students in this European Studies programme at University College London (UCL) can specialise in any area of European Studies for which there is a suitable supervisor. We have a high level of expertise in the fields of modern European history, thought, literature, and film.
Many of our graduates go on to pursue academic careers and recently our students have taken up positions at UCL, Oxford and King’s College London amongst others. Others are working for non-governmental organisations or in the arts.
