European Politics

The European integration has been the most decisive development to transform Europe since World War II. We examine the current challenges faced by Europe such as Brexit, the refugee crisis, as well as the aftermath of the financial crisis in relation to the Euro.

Program Highlights

  • Negotiate politics as a European diplomat in a simulation game, exploring the forces reshaping Europe’s future
  • Gain an insider’s perspective on local politics during Field Studies such as visiting the Danish Foreign Ministry and Parliament
  • Bring theory to life by traveling on course-integrated Study Tours to visit key European political institutions and decision makers

Is This Program For You?

It’s a good fit if you study:

  • International Relations
  • Political Science

My core course, European Game of Politics, gave me a chance to experience the heart of European institutions through interactive and hands-on learning; we didn’t just read about the European Union, we lived it. As an American political science student, it is so important to learn about our largest ally, and I can’t imagine a better way to do so than on-site and with key actors.”
