Description

The Master's degree programme in European studies is for anyone with a Bachelor's degree in a relevant social science or humanistic subject who would like to add a European dimension to their education. The purpose of the degree programme is to give you general knowledge of European conditions, political as well as historical and cultural, to build on the insight you gained in your BA studies.

Work internationally and interculturally

With a Master’s degree in European studies, you are qualified to analyse, understand and work with both this European diversity and everything that brings Europeans together. European studies is an interdisciplinary and multicultural degree programme and therefore qualifies you to work in international organisations, large corporations and in public administration.

Why European studies?

Europe is becoming more and more important for the individual. Europeans are becoming more closely connected, and Brussels is moving closer. This is at least the general impression, and it is worth a closer look. In European studies, you learn to analyse the many problems and possibilities inherent in the European collaboration and Europe in general. You 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.

New international perspectives

The degree programme targets students with a solid academic background who would like to add a European perspective to their education. You 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, teaching or cultural understanding. In addition, European studies is an international Master’s degree programme where your fellow students come from all over the world. All instruction therefore takes place in English and you speak a lot of English both during classes and after hours.

Upon completion of the degree, you will receive the title Master of Arts in European Studies. If you are interested in learning more about the degree programme. The degree programme is offered by the Institute for Culture and Society
