European Union Summer

Program Overview

EU Summer

Based in Freiburg, Germany, the European Union Summer Program takes you on extended field study trips to Turkey and the Western Balkan states for an intensive study of the European Union and its relationships with its neighbors to the east. This program challenges you with a unique Integrative Seminar and with a variety of elective course options.

The program deepens your understanding of the region and gives you first-hand experience with the cultural and political landscape of the European Union and its neighbors today.

Why The European Union?

The European Union is not only an important political and economic institution, but a community of nearly 500 million citizens and one of the largest markets in the world. As the European Union continues to grow in size and influence, understanding the EU and the countries seeking membership, becomes key to understanding Europe and our world. With its central European location, the picturesque city of <a href="//www.iesabroad.org/study-abroad/freiburg>Freiburg makes an ideal starting point for the exploration of the European Union.
