Concentration Profile: European Studies

This post is the eighth in an on-going series highlighting SAIS concentrations.
The European Studies concentration at SAIS doesn’t just cover the countries in the European Union; it also includes eastern and Mediterranean Europe, as well as Russia.  Dr. Erik Jones, SAIS Professor and Director of European Studies, discusses some of the finer points about European Studies. Watch here.

Students concentrating in European Studies are strongly encouraged to spend their first year at the Bologna Center, and their second year in Washington, DC.  Students in European studies have the opportunity to participate in study trips in Europe, visiting various institutions and employers, and many students complete a summer internship in Europe between their first and second years. 
You can learn more about European Studies at SAIS here.
Thanks for reading!
