CEUCE Fully Sponsored
EU-Studies Summer Program – Brussels
The EU Studies Summer Program in Brussels offers US students the opportunity to study the emergence of a united Europe in its dynamic heart. Running from July 8 to August 9, the program will consist of two courses plus an EU simulation for a total of 12 quarter credits (or 8 semester credits). The Program is administered by the European Commission-sponsored EU Center of Excellence at the University of Washington (Seattle), and is hosted by the Universite' Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). This five-week program features lectures and seminars by leading experts on the EU from both sides of the Atlantic, as well as site visits to major EU institutions and organizations involved in European integration. In addition, the program is supplemented by cultural and social events in and around the city, as well as a field trip to Luxembourg. Participating students will also receive a three-day Benelux rail pass. Brussels' central location allows students to easily explore the area's rich history and culture at their own pace. The city is famous for its excellent dining, and the program will include two special group dinners. Field trip costs are covered by program fees. Discover the new Europe through the EU Studies Program in Brussels!
