Study Abroad Summer 2014
Brussels is the unofficial yet undeniable “capital of Europe,” home of the European Union, NATO, and over 1,000 international organizations and multinational firms. A cosmopolitan, multilingual city, Brussels offers something for everyone: historical and cultural richness, architectural diversity, a vibrant nightlife and art scene, distinctive cuisine and old world charm. It is the heart of European politics and the perfect base from which to study the European Union.
Why Study the EU?
Comprised of 28 countries representing nearly 500 million citizens, the EU represents decades of groundbreaking political and economic integration. A major player in global trade, development, security, and scientific research, the EU is the largest economic bloc in the world, generating over 20 percent of the global GDP with only 7 percent of the world’s population. The amount of high-level contact with officials and representatives of the EU, member states, and NATO delegations, coupled with home stays with local families through our study abroad program creates a unique opportunity for students of all backgrounds and majors.
