European Politics

The European integration has been the most decisive development to transform Europe since WorldWar II. Externally, the EU has slowly emerged as a major player on the world scene, while internally the system attempts to strike a balance between continued enlargement and further political integration.

The European Union, in cooperation with Europe, is facing many critical challenges with Brexit, the aftermath of the refugee crisis, as well as the rise of populism and polarization. We examine these current challenges and explore ‘how to play the game’ in the current EU political field.

Is This Program For You?

It’s a good fit if you study:

  • International Relations
  • Political Science

My Core Course 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.”
