This study abroad experience features 2 - 3 credit hours courses, three in political science (PSCI 499) and 3 in history (HIST 360). The course is titled The Evolution of European Government and Society. Students will have an opportunity to visit the major historical and cultural sights of these cities as well as hear lectures from experts in international and European politics. The program will employ hands-on learning to provide students with an experiential understanding of early political thought and political systems. This is not your typical study abroad course where students go to a foreign country and take classes at a host university. It is a holistic approach that maximizes the international experience.
Dr. Sally Brasher, associate professor in the Department of History at Shepherd and director of the honors program, and
Dr. Niel Brasher, professor in the Department of Political Science at Shippensburg University, will conduct the program. The Brashers have led more than 10 different university groups to Europe.
