EU Perspectives is a seminar + study tour focused on undergraduate research on Europe, the European Union, and France. Designed with UC's strategic partnership with the Universities of Bordeaux and Bordeaux-Montaigne in mind, the course objectives emphasize constructive research collaboration here at UC and on location in Bordeaux. The students design and conduct research on a topic of their choice combining (a) specialty interests (minor or major), (b) Europe and European Union data, and (c) opportunities and resources in Bordeaux (France) during a 2-week faculty-led study abroad program. This project allows students to learn about the forces at play in the European integration process through investigating the impact of EU policies, agencies, and programs at the member state, regional, or local level, and by observing what is it like to work, own a business, study, or raise a family in Europe.
