POL 340 Uniting Europe: The Political Economy of the European Union
4 hours; 4 credits
The course focuses on the post-1945 movement toward the economic, monetary, and political union of European states. It examines the origins of European integration, the evolution from a six-nation common market in the 1950s to a single European market with a common currency. Analyzes the European Union’s distinctive political system—its governing institutions, policy process, party politics, the problems created by expanding membership, persisting tensions between national and European interests—as well as Europe’s external relations and role as global actor.
Prerequisite: A college-level course in political science, preferably POL 240
