Center for the Study of Europe (BUCSE)

The mission of the Center for the Study of Europe is to promote understanding of Europe through its cultural heritage, its political, economic, and religious histories, its art, literature, music, and philosophy, as well as through its recent emergence as a new kind of international form through the European Union (EU).  Operationally, the Center will provide a focal point and institutional support for the study of Europe across Boston University through coordination of teaching missions, support of research, community-building among faculty and students, and outreach beyond the university.

All Boston University faculty involved in the study of Europe through research or teaching, regardless of the school or college in which their appointments are based, are welcome to affiliate with the Center for the Study of Europe. They will be appointed for five-year terms, renewable simply by request to the Director.
