While the EHPS rests mainly on courses from the social science disciplines, it also includes those considering Europe in a comparative context as well as courses covering a specific period or region of Europe. In addition, it provides for a humanistic inquiry of Europe reflecting its diverse cultural and linguistic heritage through a broad array of courses from the humanities departments.
