Program Overview

Euromasters prepares students for careers in business, administration, diplomacy, policy formulation and research. The program focuses on the comparative analysis of European polity, politics, and policy. It is operated by the European American University Consortium (EAUC). This vast network of renowned universities gives students the unique opportunity to complete the program at a minimum of two and up to three different universities in Europe. Therefore, students do not simply pursue a European Studies degree but experience Europe from the perspective of multiple countries, their (academic) cultures, and languages. After the successful completion of all study requirements, students are awarded a Joint Degree (MA in Contemporary European Studies) by the University of Bath on behalf of the EAUC.

The Humboldt University of Berlin (German: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) is one of Berlin's oldest universities, founded in 1810 as the University of Berlin (Universität zu Berlin) by the liberal Prussian educational reformer and linguist Wilhelm von Humboldt, whose university model has strongly influenced other European and Western universities. From 1828 it was known as the Frederick William University (Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität), and later (unofficially) also as the Universität unter den Linden after its location. In 1949, it changed its name to Humboldt-Universität in honour of both its founder Wilhelm and his brother, geographer Alexander von Humboldt. In 2012, the Humboldt University of Berlin was one of eleven German top-universities (also known as elite universities) to win in the German Universities Excellence Initiative, a national competition for universities organized by the German Federal Government.
