Undergraduate degree programs in French & Italian:
5 Year BALAS /MA in French and European Union Studies
The Department of French and Italian with the European Union Center offers a 5-year BALAS/MA degree program in French and the Master of Arts in European Union Studies (MAEUS). In order to be admitted to this degree program, students apply through a joint application process to their BALAS–granting program and the European Union Center during their third year of studies. Requirements for this degree program are identical to those for the stand-alone BALAS and for the stand-alone MAEUS. Students will receive both degrees when the requirements are met for the degrees; the BALAS and MA degrees will be conferred separately and independently. More detailed information may be obtained from department and EUC offices.
