Guided Pathways: European History

European History explores and challenges transformations in Europe and its influence in the world over the last several centuries. By examining such themes as empire, war, migration, and cooperation in Europe, students gain a broader understanding of other cultures and societies. It prepares students to critically consider Europe—and by extension any region—and the construction of nationality and identity. To do so, students examine primary sources from different regions, cultures, and media. Students who study European history often go on to teach primary or secondary school, attend law school, work for the State Department, or teach English abroad.
