Spring Break 2021 with Professor Spero, Heart of Europe Program in Germany, Netherlands, and Poland

Dates: March 6, 2021 - March 14, 2021   
Estimated Cost: TBD 

Join Professor Josh Spero on the exciting “Heart of Europe” trip in March 2021! This spring break program is part of the “Europe Today” Political Science/History course (POLS 2110 or HIST 2110, CTW & GDC credit, too). It expands our partnership with European and other international students and faculty at Rhine-Waal University, our exchange partner in Germany (Kleve & Kamp Lintfort Campuses).

Students from both campuses participate in workshops on US-European relations and develop a cooperative university-to-university research project on expanding our "US-European Transatlantic Relationship." Students also decompress with Europe’s wonderful café culture, touring such significant, historic, and monumental European sites as Amsterdam, the International Court of Justice (The Hague/Netherlands), Rhine-Waal University and its Kleve / Kamp Lintfort cities, NATO Headquarters (Northwest Rhineland/Germany) and, in Kraków, Poland: Jagiellonian University, Wawel Castle, Wieliczka underground Salt Mine, Oskar Schindler’s Factory (from the movie "Schindler's List"), and the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.

“There have been a lot of decisions in my life that have changed my direction completely. My choice to go on this trip to Europe is probably one of the most influential decisions I have ever made.” 

-- Ms. Hannah Pollan, Political Science Major / International Relations Concentrator, FSU Class of 2020
