This info session is for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students interested in study abroad opportunities to explore issues in global energy.
To be offered in May 2018, Competing Perspectives on Global Energy: From Western PA to Eastern Europe (http://abroad.pitt.edu/globalenergy) will introduce students to global business and policy questions related to natural gas and other energy resources through visits to 4 interconnected locations. Study sites for this 2-week course include Washington County, PA; Washinton, D.C.; Brussels, Belgium; and Kyiv, Ukraine. Participants will make site visits to think tanks, and various government and civic organizations and participate in lectures by local stakeholders and specialists. At the end of the course, participants will have a much broader understanding of the global impact of energy developments and more clearly understand how local activities such as those related to Marcellus Shale can have far-reaching consequences in different sectors and geographic locations.
