Masters of Science

Compare 2 MSc Programs in European Law

An MSc, also known as a Master of Science, is a post-graduate degree you can choose to pursue after finishing a bachelor's. This degree is based mostly in research that is within the realm of science and technology.

What is an MSc in European Law, anyway? This legal degree looks specifically at Europe, both how countries within Europe interact with each other and how they interact with the rest of the world. You can choose to focus on a specific European country or a specific area, such as economics, climate, culture, or engineering. Some questions discussed in this degree program include how the EU relates to full democracy, what can be done to reduce damages during a financial crisis, and how can countries share resources.

Conflict resolution, time management, and fluency in a foreign language are all skills you may gain during this program. Time management helps you be more efficient day to day, while conflict resolution and knowing more than one language help when meeting new people.

Some factors that influence the cost of an MSc in European Law include school location, availability of online courses, and duration of study. Contacting your chosen school in advance can remove the mystery surrounding some of these numbers.

With any degree in law, you can pursue a career in government or with legal firms. However, with a degree specifically in European law, you can also consider more international positions. For example, you could be a corporate lawyer for a business either established in or interested in branching out into Europe. You could also look for positions as an international mediator, courts officer, or academic researcher.

The world is becoming more global, so an MSc in European Law can be found in countries outside Europe. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The Master’s program in European Governance explores pressing concerns facing Europe today:

How do we manage flows of migrants into Europe? How can we regulate financial markets? How can Europe make the transition to a green economy and sustainable forms of energy? Will reforms to welfare states foster economic growth, and if so, how do we approach these reforms? What are the emerging patterns of intelligence sharing and law enforcement within the context of European cross-border policing? Are European countries becoming more similar and homogeneous because of the EU? Does the EU unify us as equals or undermine democracy?

These are amongst the most important questions facing Europe today. Each issue involves activities at the local, national and European level, and each requires insight into the fields of economics, law and public administration.
