About Year of Europe

The continent of Europe has a fascinating past, but it is also a vital part of the contemporary world and will undoubtedly play a considerable role in shaping the future.  This year, the College of Arts and Sciences’ Passport to the World program will focus on the Year of Europe.  The year-long series of programs will promote understanding of the problems and prospects of the European continent and Europe’s relationship to the United States and other parts of the world.  Throughout the year, arts, history, literature, political analysis, architecture, geography, and the social and environmental sciences will be integrated into many events enabling students, alumni and the Commonwealth to gain a better understanding of Europe today and its prospects for the future. The program will also look at connections to and differences from the U.S.

The Passport to the World program enables the College of Arts & Sciences to embark on yearlong explorations of the culture and history of a particular region or country. The program engages our community in crucial global conversations through public lectures, cultural events, course work and travel opportunities. Past programs have focused on South Africa, China, Russia's Realms, Mexico, and the Middle-East.
