Focus of the Study 

The European political and economic context is growing ever more complex. National structures are losing their significance more and more, while a multi-structural and multi-governance approach to European affairs is not to be compensable anymore. Thus, you learn to understand that European politics embraces the interaction between local, regional, national and European actors. The Master of European Studies is an interdisciplinary degree course that prepares you to interact within that very context. You deepen your knowledge in different academic fields such as sociology, law, economics and political science. You will come across lectures, tutorials or projects in European economic policy, European regulation or social policy. But you also become an expert in European law, studying all the treaties, case law, and regulations.

The Master of European Studies aims at understanding the functioning of the European Union institutions, the European Parliament, Commission, Court of Justice or Council of Ministers. Next to your study of their legal foundations, you predominantly learn through the conduction of analytical projects writing (fictive) proposals to the Parliament or Commission, for instance.

This particular Masters degree in European Studies has grown to be very popular nowadays which is why an increasing number of universities offer the programme. For admission criteria, a definite course content or application procedures, we advise you to pick a destination (country, university, college, etc.), and inquire information from your choice’s university.
