WEST is academically unique, training specialists who will strengthen transatlantic ties through fields such as public service, research, teaching, and business. Our flexible degree programs ensure our students’ scope of learning is focused on individual interests yet based on a solid foundation in West European studies.
Our flagship program is our Master of Arts. Through our dual degree options with the School of Business and School of Public and Environmental Affairs, the MA can be paired with an MBA or an MPA to be completed in only 3 years. We are also one of a select few programs that cater to Foreign Area Officers. Additionally, we offer a Ph.D. minor, a graduate area certificate, and two undergraduate minors.
