As early as 2001, Sciences Po anticipated the European Union enlargement by creating an Undergraduate Program in Dijon focusing on the challenges related to integrating the Central and Eastern European countries into the European Union. The programme has a strong and distinctive identity stemming from its focus on European affairs, with a particular emphasis on Central and Eastern Europe. Located in the centre of Dijon and beneﬁtting from the pleasant surroundings of the Burgundy region, the campus is home to students from France and Central Europe as well as other international students. They receive the kind of rigorous theoretical and multidisciplinary education combined with methodological training that is central to the identity of Sciences Po. They also take courses speciﬁcally designed to familiarize students with the challenges confronting the construction of Europe today, with the speciﬁcities of Central and Eastern European member states, and with border and neighbourhood-relations issues in a 28-member European Union. French and English are the working languages on the Dijon campus. Language instruction occupies an important place in the curriculum, with particular emphasis on less commonly studied European languages. Thus, alongside English, German, Spanish and Italian, the Dijon campus also offers Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Russian and Czech. The Dijon Campus hosts students who are attracted by its European and international character and are planning to pursue careers with a European dimension. Central and Eastern Europe is a particularly dynamic growth region that is very attractive to international investors, while on the political level these countries are already playing a major role in the 28-member Union. Knowledge of this part of our continent, and more generally a deep understanding of the stakes surrounding the European Union today, therefore represents an invaluable asset for students in their future studies and professional careers.
