The European Union Studies Program Minor (EUSP-M) in the College of Liberal Arts and Science is designed by the Center for European Studies (CES) to give UF students the opportunity to gain multi-disciplinary expertise, as well as practical hands-on experience in EU-related affairs through course work, internship and study abroad opportunities.
The EUSP-M is open to all UF undergraduates. To be eligible students must have an overall GPA of at least 2.5. The minor requires completion of an exit survey, 18 hours of course work as well as participation in either an EU-related internship or a Study Abroad Program in one of CES-sponsored programs. The internship has to be approved by the Director of the EU Studies Program and in coordination with a faculty mentor of the student’s choosing. Only previously approved CES-sponsored Study Abroad Programs (UF in Brussels, UF in Kraków/Wrocław, UF in Prague or UF in Salzburg) with at least one explicitly EU-related course (focus on an individual EU member-state or group of member states is not sufficient) will be automatically counted towards the fulfillment of the capstone requirements of the EUSP minor degree. In the case of all other Study Abroad Programs prior approval must be obtained. A maximum of 6 credits may be double-counted with a major/minor.

The EUSP Fall 2017 Schedule lists all current or previously offered courses. Additional courses with European Union content not listed in the EUSP curriculum may be counted as area studies core or enhanced courses by petition.
