AB European Studies and Minor in European Studies


AB European Studies is a multidisciplinary program focusing on the political, economic, social, and cultural institutions of the European Union and its policymaking process. Special focus is given to the European integration process, as well as links between Europe and the Philippines.  Students can specialize in any of the two tracks - International Relations, focusing on the internal and external political dynamics of Europe; and Business and Economics, which does not only concentrates on Europe’s business and economy, but provides students with general skills in business, finance, and accounting.  Students are required to specialize any of the three European languages (Spanish, French or German).

The program gives the students the advantage of first-hand business and cultural exposure of the continent through a study tour, summer internship (local or overseas), study abroad program and service learning courses.



Minor in European Studies - The Minor Program provides the students understanding and appreciation for Europe’s history, culture, politics and economics.  This knowledge equips the students with an appreciation of the business opportunities offered by the European Single Market, the common cultural and political heritage of Europe and the Philippines, and the political and diplomatic prospects of closer Philippine-European relations.
