CES has a longstanding commitment to supporting undergraduates. Our faculty and staff teach and advise Harvard college students interested in studying European history, politics, economics, and other social sciences. A dedicated Student Program Coordinator supports undergraduates who are just beginning to discover new European interests and those who are refining their academic expertise.
- By overseeing the Secondary Field in European History, Politics, and Societies (EHPS), CES provides Harvard College students a coherent plan of curricular study on Europe.
- Through a broad network of faculty and other affiliates CES allows students to encounter a rich set of course offerings, deep faculty knowledge in a wide range of subject areas, and regular opportunities to hear from key policy makers and scholars on the latest political, social and economic developments.
- In their junior year students can take part in CES thesis workshops to help develop and craft a senior thesis or identify career paths after graduation.
- CES is deeply committed to providing students with the resources to travel to Europe for research and offers summer thesis research grants.
- Undergraduates have access to first-hand learning about Western and Eastern Europe and beyond through summer internships with European alumni in exciting range of fields.
- As members of the Harvard College European Society, students can play a leadership role in organizing Center events.
