Studying the EU in France


This past summer, Victorialyn Keay (International Political Studies, 2014; she's in the middle) was one of nineteen international students who studied the European Union during a four-week program with ESSCA, a private university located in Angers, France. She took classes on European politics, European economics and French culture and communication while also visiting related historical and cultural sites such as Normandy Beach and a vineyard. The class also visited the major institutions of the European Union in Brussels, Belgium and finished off our trip in Paris just in time for Bastille Day. "Studying in France and being surrounded by French culture," comments Victorialyn, "was not only a childhood dream fulfilled, but it has inspired me to write my Ashbrook Thesis on the European Union."
