The University of Pau and Adour Regions (South West of France) is holding a one-week English-language summer school on its Atlantic Coast campus just outside Biarritz (13-17 July 2015). The school is open to students of all ages interested in a unique "Anglo-Saxon" academic experience in an exceptional setting: sandy beaches and stunning coastal cities are 10 mn away from campus.

Courses

Four exciting courses with a broad appeal will be taught by talented and enthusiastic professors recruited specifically from English-language universities:

  • “Third World Women”: Gender and the Global South, by Samantha Christiansen, Marywood University, USA.
    Students will learn about topics of contemporary significance to women in the Third World, such as the Veil, Microfinance, and Sex Trafficking, among others. 
  • Economics of Climate Change: Myths and Realities, by Peter Dorman, Evergreen State College, Washington State.
    Acknowledging climate change is just the start. In this course we’ll cut through the confusion about the science, economics and policy of the century’s toughest challenge. 
  • Contending Economic Theories: Neoclassical, Keynsian and Marxian, by Richard D. Wolff, New School University, NY, USA.
    Learn about the three major economic "worldviews" - the dominant and the dissenting - and how they shape thoughts and actions trying to cope with global economic and social problems of the 21st century. 
  • Big History: An introduction to 13.8 billion years of history since the Big Bang, by David Baker, University of Amsterdam, Netherlands.
    "Big History" is a recent and multidisciplinary school of history that emphasizes "the grand narrative" spanning the 13.8 billion years of our universe. 

The students will pass a final exam in their chosen course, the modalities of evaluation depend on the professor’s choice. Here you can find an overview of the courses held.
