Academic courses on Europe and the EU

Depending on the program you are either taking a variety of introductory courses (Winter Program, Summer Program I+II) or in-depth courses (Fall Term Program) on Europe and the EU. Each program follows an interdisciplinary approach. Thus, class sessions cover diverse areas such as EU politics, history, law, international business and culture.

The Fall Term Program serves as an opportunity for international students interested in further studies at the University of Tübingen at the M.A. or even PhD level.

Seminars are taught in English by Tübingen University faculty dedicated to the study of Europe. In addition, you meet with European politicians, debate on current European affairs, and attend guest lectures by experts from each of the different fields. Classes are small and individual mentoring is guaranteed at all times.

Exemplary courses are:

  • EU Institutions, Politics, and History
  • European Foundations of the Legal Order
  • Doing Business in Europe
  • Human Rights, Minority Rights, and Interculturality in Europe

IES Seminars reflect the core elements of the European values which constitue the foundations of Europe and the European Union: Peace, the separation of powers, the rule of law, and freedom.

The courses offered can vary from program to program. Please see the respective program page to get more information on the corresponing courses.
