European Studies

Understanding the world’s progressive superpower
Explore Europe’s diverse and fascinating collection of cultural identities and histories. Reach back to the past and forward to the future.

Europe is a federation of states that have joined together to solve the most pressing global challenges of the 21st century. Our focus goes beyond the European Union, drawing broadly on historical and socio-cultural theories with a focus on the wider European continent, its cultures, politics and societies.

We specialise in theoretical structures including world systems and civilisational theory, as well as contemporary social theory, comparative literary theory and intellectual history. Our graduates work in journalism, media, government, non-government organisations, multinational business, education and training.
