Political Science 250 - Europe: European Union Politics

Students will study the opportunities and challenges faced by the European Union (EU) today. We will consider the role of the European Union in pacifying the continent after WWII and reuniting it following the Cold War. We'll look at EU institutions, how several important European states and their citizens related to the EU, and how EU policy is made and carried out. Through a week of intensive on-campus course work and 18 days of site visits, research and reflection in London, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, and Frankfurt, students will immerse themselves in the politics of the important supranational organizations as well as the cultures of some its largest member states.
