  • Central & Eastern Europe: Winds of Change

    Study Abroad

    In the year 1989, the world drastically began to change for millions of people in the communist nations within Central & Eastern Europe. This ‘wind of change’ blew east and  eventually lead to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Many of the people who brought about these changes were university students armed with only their voices, their minds, and their belief in democracy. For many of these nations, it was a peaceful process. For some, the euphoria was short lived and political and economic chaos ensued. This program will travel to five former communist nations (Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, and Georgia) to examine this time of change and its lasting legacy in the region.
