Study Post-Soviet Politics in Ukraine with the University of Arizona

CEA Global Education and the University of Arizona are partnering to promote a unique study abroad experience unlike any of their other respective offerings.  The Arizona in Ukraine program springs from the successful Arizona in Yalta summer program that provides students with a taste of what life is like in a post-Soviet nation that is in the process of establishing itself as a viable democracy in 21st Century Europe.

This partnership builds on CEA’s assistance with several custom faculty-led programs through the University of Arizona and provides both CEA and UA the exciting opportunity to expose students to a part of the world that few in North America have visited, let alone studied to such a great capacity.

Arizona in Ukraine is the only study abroad program that offers a semester-long program in Ukraine for undergraduate students interested in political science, sociology, international relations and Model UN while also providing the opportunity to study Russian.  Classes are taught in English at the Kharkiv National University of Economics (KhNUE), one of the leading universities in Ukraine.  Kharkiv is a scientific, educational and cultural center in Ukraine.  Exciting academic field trips to Kyiv, Odessa and Crimea boost cultural immersion and complement the material studied in the classroom.

Students will interact with leaders of the community and local social sciences scholars. They'll also learn about Ukrainian culture and post-Soviet politics first-hand.

Comfortable and modern housing on the KhNUE campus together with extensive support from the Arizona in Ukraine staff in Kharkiv will provide all the necessary ingredients for a successful and rewarding study abroad experience.

Students will see the modern aspects of Ukrainian society and experience its rich traditions.   In some respects, Kharkiv is a living open-air museum where one can see the remains of its communist past and how this has transitioned into some of Europe’s youngest democracies.  Arizona in Ukraine students will get the chance to observe in person this process of transformation and Ukraine’s crucial relationship to world affairs today.

Additionally, through the leadership of University of Arizona’s capable Model United Nations student participants, the program will offer Model United Nations (MUN) courses aimed at students creating, organizing, recruiting and developing a MUN program in Kharkiv, providing an as-real-as-it-gets opportunity to work closely with American, Ukrainian and other international students in a hands-on learning experience for credit.
