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.
