Open to Non-UHCL Applicants:
As globalization reshapes the world, what is the impact on European economies and what roles do economists play in explaining, forecasting, and advising? Analyze and compare how companies, countries, and sectors compete and position themselves in a globalized world. Critically examine and apply economic theories to contemporary European case studies.
You explore globalization and its impact on trade, capital, culture, and politics around the world. A particular focus is on European economies and challenges faced by the EU and its neighbors. You gain a deeper knowledge of theories within the field, and go on to apply and challenge economic thinking through discussions, Field Studies, and Study Tours.
Core Course Study Tours
This program travels on Study Tours to the following destinations:
Week-Long Study Tour: London or Bratislava-Vienna or Brussels-Paris
Core Course Week: Denmark-Northern Germany
Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.
While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
