The ESC typically provides classes of small size (averaging 25 students), many of them taught by internationally renowned faculty. Courses are cross-listed across departments, professional schools, and other interdisciplinary programs. Courses about specific countries, with a comparative and regional focus, and courses highlighting the intellectual foundations of West European culture form the program's core. Such courses offer students the benefits of both breadth and specialization.
