Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in Berlin in Germany. The Anglophone 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 European Studies and International Relations: The MAEIS is an international, interdisciplinary and itinerant programme. Following the slogan “Learning and living Europe”, the participants rotate each trimester, moving their place of studies from Istanbul to Berlin and then to Nice. The MAEIS is a one­ year ­programme, subdivided into three study 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).

Deadline for applications: For the academic year 2016/17: the deadline is extended to 9 September 2016. (Only for candidates who do not need a Schengen visa for their stay in the EU!) Teaching modules International Relations The module aims at enriching students’ understanding of the similarities, differences and interactions of national foreign policies in a globalised world. It considers emerging patterns of international politics, including international law and international tribunals, globalisation and transatlantic relations, as well as conflict management. European integration This module aims at familiarising the students, who could well become the next generation of European and international decision­makers, with an expert knowledge of the structures, institutions, law and policies of the European Union, as well as of the historical development of European unification. Federalism and Governance This module provides an original perspective on contemporary political institutions, through varied federal and multilevel governance frameworks. 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. Professional Skills Workshops This module equips the participants with the professional skills and competences that will enable them to work in the context of the European and international organisations: project cycle management, intercultural management, international mediation and negotiation, drafting of position papers and policy recommendations. 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).

Student testimonial " The dual degree “Politikwissenschaften- Affaires Internationales” at Sciences Po Paris and FU Berlin offers the chance to study in two different university systems in two outstanding European cities – Paris and Berlin. As I am very interested in international energy politics, I specialized in International Energy at Sciences Po Paris. While the classes were very practice-oriented and focused on economic aspects, I can now focus on a broader range of political sciences topics at FU Berlin. However, it is still possible to pick courses relating to the specialization I pursued at Sciences Po. Of course, the different approaches in France and Germany can be quite a challenge, but I personally consider them an opportunity to approach topics differently. Besides, I strongly recommend taking advantage from the possibilities students have to get involved in activities beyond University, which also help to sharpen the professional and academic profile." Lilly Höhn Dual degree Sciences Po - Freie Universität Berlin The Alumni Association The “Association Gerhard Kiersch Verein” (AGKV) was founded in 1995.
