IES Abroad European Union - Semester/Year

Global brilliance begins here.

IES Abroad European Union - Semester/Year

The centrally-located city of Freiburg, Germany, will be your home base. It’s here that you’ll take English-taught courses like Global Leadership, Political Science, and German. As part of the program’s required Integrative Seminar, you will travel for 22 days to gain exposure to the European Union and beyond. Not only will these course-related excursions give you better insight into the strengths and challenges of the European Union, they will also give you the experience you need to build your résumé and prepare you for an international career. As you visit each new country, you develop an understanding of the European Union, its history, and its institutions. Europe will be your classroom. Imagine visiting the European Parliament and discussing current social and political issues with EU officials, or meeting with leaders of multinational corporations to learn about international trade. You also engage in a Model European Union, where you assume the role of a head of state or a foreign minister of an EU country to analyze and debate issues of current concern in Europe, such as security and foreign affairs, EU enlargement, and the multi-annual financial framework. The Model EU concludes the Integrative Seminar and is the capstone of the program. In the spring semester, you can also add international work experience to your résumé by participating in a for-credit internship placement in Freiburg or Brussels and the accompanying internship seminar after the program. We want you to feel at home, so we do everything we can to help you integrate into life in Freiburg. From housing to cultural events and tours of the city and local sites, our job is to make sure you have the most authentic study abroad experience possible, and offer you numerous opportunities to get to know Germany.
