À propos du cours

"Geopolitics of Europe" offers a dynamic program on both tensions and issues within the European Union, as well as its interactions with the rest of the world. Through maps, iconography, videos, computer graphics and role playing, the Mooc renders the main geopolitical issues appropriate to Europe while focusing on its representations around the world. Definitely multi-disciplinary, this Mooc offers the learners a real tool box built up through a combination of History, Geopolitics, Economics, Political science, Geography and Law. Format : The pedagogical program is both progressive and modular. It is composed of seven thematic blocks. Each block has a different scale and view point. Even though the main issue exploration in each block is thought as free navigation, each block remains marked out by specific steps : a mapping situation scenario, the study of a documentary corpus, a focus on the national perceptions, as well as an emphasis on the news. Please notice that some very limited content will only be available in French. The knowledge acquired in the first four blocks can then be assessed through a quiz and put into practice through the final serious game : a European scenario, a mission, and decisions to make...! Block number seven offers new analysis that will enable you to understand the latest events of the year 2016....

This was one of the most interesting coursers so far, especially the Game part. I'd definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to understand political behavior.

An alternative approach to understanding the place of Europe in the world from a French perspective. Particularly enjoyable.

I was very excited to take this course, but it is unfortunately rather disappointing.

Firstly, the course is significantly outdated, as most of the readings, videos, and materials predate the Juncker administration - so expect the information to be at least 4 years old. It does not cover current issues of European politics, such as the rise of Euroscepticism throughout the union or Brexit.

Secondly, even though it is advertised as an English language course, most materials are in French. Some videos - the ones provided by Sciences Po - are subtitled in English but rather difficult to follow. Other written materials are usually badly translated in English (I can only assume that they have been automatically translated). I do not recommend this to anyone whose French is not up to par

Overall, this course would have been great in 2014 for French speakers, but at the moment it is quite disappointing.

A good course for students from non-European territories - I would say "Europe for beginners". However, as a European student of International Relations, I have found only a limited amount of new information in this course. Furthermore, I am very disappointed that this course is not updated! There were some really important events in the past two or three years: the whole Brexit, Macron in France, the last term of Mrs Merkel in Germany, upcoming elections to the EP... That is a real shame. Therefore, I give this course only two stars.

Considero que el contenido del curso es excelente, solo sugiero la necesidad de actualizar los datos que se manejan, pues algunos de ellos han cambiado sustancialmente, y por tanto, modifican el análisis que pudiera derivarse de ellos. Otra sugerencia está relacionada con las preguntas del QUIZ, serían mucho más interesantes si estuvieran dirigidas a la comprensión o análisis del contenido de cada lección, y no datos numéricos específicos que para nada determinan si el estudiante ha asimilado el contenido o no. Por lo demás el curso me resultó de MUCHÍSIMA UTILIDAD. Una herramienta MAGNÍFICA es el Game al final de cada lección.

Good course, if you speak French. I enrolled in this course because it was marked as English. While it is possible to follow the course in English, most of the translations are of a poor quality. It seems as if an original French transcript was simply funnelled through Google Translate. This is lazy and reflect poorly on Sciences Po.

Would be more useful if some of the descriptions were translated into English, and the content was updated to reflect the situation in 2017-18

I signed up and was excited to take this course. However, when I started watching the videos, I realized it was all in French without English subtitles. I subsequently had to un-enroll. Courses should be labeled with the relevant language they're in.

I really enjoyed this course. It was really enlightening for me, as I don't live in Europe but have always had an interest in European affairs. This course was really well structured and informative. My only problem was that I don't speak French. And as a result I couldn't understand many of the websites that were linked to in the course and although the captions translate for everyone speaking, they don't translate writing. So I couldn't actually tell what the question was and could only try and guess from the answers. I also checked the transcript and I couldn't read the questions there either. Other than that though really good course, thank you Coursera.

Very interesting course, the real added value is the interviews from experts!

It has been an interesting course compelling some of the current challenges of the EU and providing a context about the perception that several countries have of the EU (member and non-member states).

This course is a good idea if you want to "refresh" or get a basic idea of geopolitics of Europe. Everybody interested in EU policies should take the course.

However, please take into consideration hat some of the materials and all the lectures are in French (you can use english subtitles to follow it).

There really isn't that much to absorb if you already read current journals and papers. For history of geopolitics maybe there is some usefulness, but even then it is scant.

The course is ok, but needs some improvement. I felt the course was somehow a bit disorganised. The content also seems sometimes quite basic if you already know something about the European Union.
