About the program
For the sixth time, Speyer University and SPEA (School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indianapolis, USA) offer a joint summer program on comparative public policy and administration in Germany, the European Union, and the United States.
Five seminars will provide an overview of major topics of public management, European economic integration, policy-making in the EU, its neighbourhood policy, and US and EU constitutional law.
The program will provide Speyer University, US and international students (e.g. from Russia) with a unique opportunity to study major fields and approaches of public policy and administration in an interdisciplinary and international context and to share their experiences coming from different cultures.
Further highlights of the program will be excursions to the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, to the picturesque city of Heidelberg, to the European Parliament in Strasbourg (France) and other EU institutions in Brussels (Belgium).
SPEA graduate students and select undergraduates will participate in the program as part of their regular program in public administration. SPEA students are able to receive up to 6 credit points. This would require a paper and an oral presentation in two seminars of their choice as well as two reading assignments in other courses.
Students enrolled at Speyer University are welcome to participate in one or more seminars of the program as part of their regular curriculum. Students have to meet the normal seminar requirements of Speyer University: Submission of a paper and an oral presentation of it, both in English.
Speyer University and SPEA also offer a Certificate of Participation at the end of the program. In this case, participation in all five seminars is necessary. For further information, please consult the syllabus of the program (see below).
