There are a few spaces remaining in our Summer Brussels Program (May 10 - June 12).  Centered in the "Capital of Europe", this five-week program features two honors courses. In "European Integration," students learn about the development of the European Union and the role of the EU in various policy areas. In "Cultural Topics" students explore the rich history and artistic heritage of Belgium and the Low Countries. Both courses are taught in English by faculty at our partner institution, Institut Catholique des Hautes Etudes Commerciales.

In addition to the courses, there are several day trips and tours of historically significant cities, such as Bruges (the "Venice of the North"), Antwerp, and Ghent. We also take a tour of Chocolate Planet where students actually make their own confections! We also include a discussion with officials at the European Commission and a tour of a brewery. On weekends students are free for personal travel. In the past, popular destinations have been Paris, Amsterdam, London and Cologne.

We project the cost for the program at $4,300 (subject to change based on exchange rates). The cost covers: tuition, program fees, lodging, Metro pass for travel in Brussels, insurance, program-related field trips, and closing dinner. The cost does NOT include airfare and meals. Students should count on spending about $500 during the five weeks for their daily meals.

The priority deadline to ensure a place in the program is February 16. Applications will be accepted until March 1 or until such time as the program is full, whichever is earlier. Applications are at http://www.clemson.edu/ia/abroad/apply.html .
