European Studies Program

European Studies inspires students to expand their worldview and pursue their academic passions through hands-on experience. 

Founded in 1988, European Studies is the first collaborative study abroad program jointly owned by Rhodes College and The University of the South (Sewanee). The semester-long program provides students with an opportunity to combine study at prestigious Lincoln College, Oxford University, with extensive travel across Continental Europe. Students are immersed in the study of a specific historical period within one of three options:

  • Ancient Greece and Rome
  • Medieval and Renaissance Europe
  • Contemporary Europe

Each option provides students an unrivaled opportunity to visit many of Europe′s greatest monuments, cities, landscapes and works of art.
