Description

Teaching languages: français/english

Taught in the heart of one of the principal institutional centres of the European Union, the University of Luxembourgs innovative new bilingual (English/French) Master in European Governance distinctively combines:

  • a strong core of teaching on European Politics and Policy
  • a broader interdisciplinary curriculum on European integration;
  • a series of practitioner-led seminars providing unique insight into the processes of European decision-making.

The Masters degree builds upon the research programme in European Governance established in 2004, which brings together over 25 collaborators.
