DescriptionEurope is becoming more and more important. While Europeans become more closely connected, Brussels is making decisions that affect every European nation, every level of industry, and virtually every business. However, this view of international relations is constantly challenged and discussed. In European studies, you will learn to analyse both the problems and the possibilities inherent in the European collaboration – and in Europe in general. You will deal not only with EU institutions, but also with analyses of cultural, social and political processes in Europe – and the question of what Europe really is.
The Master’s programme in European Studies is for anyone with a bachelor’s degree in a relevant social science or humanities subject who would like to add a European perspective to their education. The aim of the degree programme is to give you general knowledge of European conditions, political as well as historical and cultural, and to build on the insight you gained in your BA studies.
New International PerspectivesThe degree programme is aimed at students with a solid academic background who would like to add a European dimension to their education. You will acquire knowledge of European affairs to supplement your bachelor’s degree. The European dimension is useful whether you wish to work with political institutions, international organisations, the business community, the media, in teaching, or with cultural understanding. This is also an international master’s programme, in which your fellow students will have come from all over the world. All instruction therefore takes place in English, and students speak English both during class and after hours.
Work Internationally and InterculturallyWith a Master’s in European Studies, you are qualified to analyse, understand and work not only with European diversity, but also everything that brings Europeans together. European Studies is an interdisciplinary and multicultural degree programme, and therefore prepares you to work in international organisations, large corporations, and in public administration.
