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.

Objectives

The principal objective of the Master in European Governance is to educate experts in European public policy, providing an advanced-level training in Political Science complemented by a wider interdisciplinarity. The programme permits students:

  • To develop transferable skills (data analysis; report-writing; oral presentation, etc.)
  • To familiarise themselves with the working methods of the European institutions and/or of private sector firms (including internship possibilities)
  • To profit from the experience of a bilingual educational and working environment, situated within a wider multilingual context
