Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in Nice in France. Master in Global Energy Transition and Governance The Master in Global Energy Transition and Governance is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give a deep understanding of the complexity of the current energy transformations in Europe and worldwide. The programme takes place in Berlin and Nice. The programme offers a unique, multidisciplinary approach which distinguishes it from other Master’s courses in the field of energy studies: It analyses the links between the different levels of energy governance, from an international to a local level, offering problem-focused learning at the crossroads of theory and practice. The one-year Master’s programme stretches over four terms and takes place in two study locations: Nice and Berlin Students who successfully complete the programme acquire 90 ECTS credits. The programme is structured into four terms: The first term (October-December) in Nice encompasses classes on the basics of the four energy modules (International energy governance, Economic energy governance, the EU energy governance and Energy and territories). Each module is complemented by seminars dealing with current energy issues. An academic or professional expert is invited for each event. For their second term (January-March) students move on to Berlin where teaching in the four modules continues in the form of workshops. Each module organises a half-day workshop with an expert. Students prepare the workshops in group work delivering papers on themes linked to the topic of the seminar (climate negotiations, energy stock exchange, the role of the EU interconnections in the European energy market, the EU funds and the territorial energy policy). To better understand the local energy challenges in the framework of the German Energy Transition Field, visits will also be organised in co-operation with local institutions and companies. Another focus of this term will be put on the methodology classes, one dedicated to the research work and the Master’s thesis, the second one to project management. In April students return to Nice. The third term (April-June) aims at deepening their knowledge on the four energy modules. A special focus is also given to the methodological support for the students’ work on their thesis including individual meetings with the academic supervisors. In the two simulations the participants will forge their negotiation techniques with regard to the construction of wind farms at local level and work out of a strategy for an international energy cooperation. Written and oral exams in June will conclude this term. From July to August students will work on their Master’s thesis. All along the summer, supervisors will be at their disposal to follow up their work. The defence of the students’ Master’s thesis will take place in Nice in mid-September.

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 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. [-]

It considers emerging patterns of international politics, including international law and international tribunals, globalisation and transatlantic relations, as well as conflict management.

It deals with issues such as diffusion and balance of power, sovereignty, minorities, democratic representation, economic coordination, and European integration. Economy and Globalisation The main goal of this module is to give a broad overview of the fundamental logics behind the processes of economic globalisation and economic development, without going too much into the details of economic theory. Another goal will be to understand how globalisation refers to the problem of international economic governance, with its institutions, actors and processes, with a special focus on the European economic integration process. The module will finally propose an overview of sustainable development issues.

Overview of the academic year The first term starts in Nice, on the Côte d’Azur. It encompasses classes on the basics of all five modules of the programme. The second term in Berlin starts off in January where teaching continues with a focus on Eastern Europe and enlargement issues of the European Union, the new international order and the transformation process in Eastern and Central Europe, as well as EU economics. Our partner in Berlin, the Institut für Europäische Politik, provides a dialogue with European integration experts and offers an insight into political life in Berlin. During this period the participants take their mid­term exams. A one ­week study trip takes them to the European and international organisations in Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg. For their third term, students move on to Istanbul, on the campus of our partner, Istanbul Bilgi University. Here, besides following in­depth courses in the five modules, students will have the opportunity to advance in their research work, as the months of May and June are left at the students’ disposal to work on their thesis. The programme concludes with the defence of the thesis and the final exams in the beginning of July. Please note: For the academic year 2016/17, depending on the local situation in Turkey, a change in the programme may apply: Should the political situation require it, the third term will be transferred to Rome where CIFE has a long-term partnership with the University EuroSapienza and the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI).
