The Master in European Studies includes 3 possible orientations:
To complete their degree, students may opt for a work placement or a dissertation. The work placement aims to prepare students for professional activity and requires that students write a final report about the experience gained, while the dissertation prepares students for academic research.
With the knowledge and skills acquired in the Master’s programme, graduates find employment in a wide range of areas. Students often go on to work in public policy planning and implementation at the regional, national or European levels. Many opportunities can also be found in the international sector, particularly in Geneva, in European institutions, international organisations, NGOs or multinational companies. This programme also prepares graduates for further studies in journalism.
