We eat Italian pizza and drink Belgian beer. We drive German cars and listen to Swedish pop music. We read English thrillers and watch French films. We go on skiing holidays in Norway and sunbathe on beaches in Greece. The European continent is made up of more than 30 countries; they have at lot in common but, at the same time, are very different. Europeans are more closely connected with one another today than ever before. With an MA in European Studies, you will be qualified to analyse, understand and work both with European diversity and all of the things that connect Europeans.
Multicultural and interdisciplinary environment
During the programme, you will work with European issues in many different ways: You will engage with EU institutions and in analyses of cultural, social and political processes in Europe, as well as the question of what Europe actually is. European Studies is both an interdisciplinary and international MA programme in which you will study together with fellow students from all over the world. This also means that teaching is conducted in English and that you will have the opportunity to speak a great deal of English both during and outside of lectures. As a student of European Studies, you will have a unique opportunity to meet students from other countries both in and outside of Europe.
The intention of the programme is to provide you with knowledge about European affairs. The European dimension provided by the programme will prove relevant in a variety of career paths, from working with political institutions, international organisations, the corporate world and the media to teaching cultural understanding. As a graduate in European Studies, you will have wide-ranging knowledge of political and cultural affairs in Europe. You will gain an insight into how large-scale interdisciplinary projects are executed in international teams, and you will become used to communicating on a daily basis in a language other than your native language.
