European studies

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

With the integration of the European economy and greater fluidity of borders comes many new challenges. European studies seeks to help students understand more about the changes inherent in this new paradigm and how to work with them, through such fields of study as politics, business, and culture.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

Masters in European studies in Asia 2017. The Mediterranean branch of the Master in Advanced European and International Studies (MAEIS) is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give students an overarching, encompassing vision of the political, social, economic, and cultural challenges of today’s world. The Master’s programme follows an original approach which distinguishes it from other Master’s courses in Euro­Mediterranean Studies and International Relations: The MAEIS is an international, interdisciplinary and itinerant programme which aims to educate the next generation of Euro­Mediterranean decision­makers. Following the slogan “Learning and living the Mediterranean”, the participants rotate each trimester, moving their place of studies from Nice to Tunis and then to Istanbul. The MAEIS is a one ­year ­programme, subdivided into three terms. Degree and recognition Students who successfully complete the programme are awarded two certifications at the end of the academic year: Master in Advanced European and International Studies: This is the diploma of CIFE, certifying the successful completion of the academic curriculum and granting 60 ECTS credits at Master level. The degree qualification Chargé de Mission en Organisations Européennes et Internationales (Policy Officer in European and International Organisations): This qualification is recognised by the French state as a degree at Master level (level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework EQF). Admission requirements This graduate programme is aimed at students who have already completed a first degree (minimum three years of study at university level). Furthermore, students must have an active knowledge of English and French. You can find more detailed information on the application procedure and apply online at www.ie-ei.eu. Deadline for applications: 15 June of the current year Teaching modules Conflict Management and Peace Making The Mediterranean is a case study par excellence for Peace and Conflict Studies. In the last two decades Mediterranean societies have been significantly affected by inter­group violence and inter­state conflicts: from the Western Balkans to Cyprus, from Israel to Palestine, from Libya to Syria. Sustainable Development and Globalisation The 21st century and especially the Mediterranean face unprecedented economic, environmental and social challenges, as the globalised economic development exerts increased pressure on limited resources, deteriorates the environment and creates growing inequalities. Regional Integration and Transformation The EU has become a role model of regional integration. How is the dynamic architecture of European institutions, including European Neighbourhood Policy, functioning? To what extent do the Arab League or the Union for the Mediterranean follow a similar logic of regional integration? How can we explain the intraregional differences in the Southern Mediterranean since the Arab Spring? Mediterranean Politics and Societies Migration, Gender, and Youth are policy fields that all Mediterranean Societies have in common, but approach differently. At the crossroads of theory and practice, this policy oriented module proposes solutions to the historical, social and cultural challenges Mediterranean societies face today. Project Management This module equips the participants with the professional skills and competences that will enable them to work in the field of Euro­Mediterranean cooperation. They will participate to negotiation and mediation trainings, simulation games and follow workshops on project cycle management and intercultural communication. Overview of the academic year The first term (October to December) starts in the European Union, in Nice, France. It encompasses classes on the basics of the five teaching modules. Studying in France helps students to analyse the Euro­Mediterranean relations and regional integration from an EU perspective. The second term (January to March) starts off in Tunis, Tunisia. Experts from the region and of different disciplines will analyse Euro­Mediterranean challenges in times of transformation and globalisation. A special focus will be put on youth policies in the Mediterranean. Studying in Tunisia will provide the students with a unique experience of a historic democratisation process that turns the country into a role model throughout the MENA region. The programme concludes (April to July) in Istanbul, Turkey at our partner university, Istanbul Bilgi University, one of the best private universities in the Eastern Mediterranean. A special focus will be given to Sustainable Development and Climate Action, as well as to Project Management classes. Students will have the opportunity to advance in their research work, as the months of May and June are left at their disposal to work on their thesis. The programme concludes with the defence of the thesis and oral exams. With their graduation, students become part of CIFE’s wide Alumni network. [-]

Introducing IMARES PLUS International Master's degree program in Russian and Eurasian Studies is the oldest of the international MA programs in English language currently offered by the European University at Saint Petersburg since 1998. Like its core subject of study - the post-Soviet space - the Program has changed and developed over the past 18 years and is now available as a two-year Master's degree state accredited program. The IMARES PLUS program not only examines the past, but also interprets the most up to date events unfolding in this fascinating region. By combining analyses of past and present, our students gain a deep understanding of the political, economic, social, and cultural dynamics of the post-Soviet space. Why Study Eurasia? In its various forms (the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, and the post-Soviet space), Eurasia has been the scene of some of the world’s most spectacular dramas during the last three centuries, including the rise and fall of empires and the successes and stagnations of strikingly different political and economic systems. It has followed a path from one of the world’s largest empires to the birth of nation states. It has been the battleground for Napoleonic Wars, Civil War, and two World Wars. During a turbulent history, the people of Eurasia experienced the contrasting forces of monarchy, socialism and fragile democracy, atheism and religious fundamentalism, and multiculturalism and ethnic conflict. Russia, Central Asia, the South Caucasus and Russia’s western neighbors have been testing the ground for political and economic theories, which left legacies that are still felt today. IMARES PLUS enables students to learn about the vast Eurasian region, the path of its development, the theory and the practice of different political and economic regimes throughout its history, and the ways in which these past experiences continue to influence developments today. Benefits of IMARES PLUS In addition to its core academic content, the program offers extra-curricular benefits: the IMARES workshop series introduces expert guest speakers from academia, politics, business and journalism. The EUSP as a top research university in the Humanities and Social Sciences hosts many different conferences, seminars and lectures. All these events are open to our students and English is often a working language of these events. All IMARES PLUS students will also take mandatory Russian language courses throughout the first three semesters of their studies, tailored to suit their ability, from beginner to advanced. Combined with the experience of living in Russia, the development of Russian language skills gives IMARES PLUS students a far greater understanding of contemporary Russia. Such a level of understanding can only be gained by actually spending two years here in Russia, and experiencing the country for yourself. IMARES PLUS Students Whether you are a historian, political scientist, sociologist, or language specialist, studying at EUSP will give you the opportunity to broaden your knowledge of Russia, to conduct thorough and detailed reserach of your subject and to create a solid background for your career. While our course modules are accessible to students of all backgrounds, the chance to engage in academic discussions with other students from different countries, cultures, and academic fields will offer fresh perspectives on the topic at hand.
