- Program Description:
- The Department of Political Science offers a five-week summer program on European Politics. The courses offered will include both a rigorous theoretical component developed through lectures and class discussion, and an applied, practical component realized through guest lectures and site visits.
The broad themes covered by the courses include the political life of the countries of contemporary Europe, including parties, voters, elections, and representative institutions; the democratic transition in Eastern Europe since the end of the Cold War, and the role of the European Union and the effects of European integration on the political processes of European countries. Following four weeks of classroom instruction in Berlin, site visits to Budapest, Prague and Brussels are planned where we will meet with experts and policy-makers.
The program is designed for Political Science and International Studies majors. NO KNOWLEDGE OF GERMAN IS REQUIRED. Participating in the program will offer students the opportunity to observe firsthand the operation of bodies such as the European Union and the national parliaments of Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Belgium. All of the courses offered are being developed for the program in order to take advantage of the unique opportunity to visit institutions and hear from policymakers, officials, and scholars.
