Master in European Governance

General

Program Description

Taught in the heart of one of the principal institutional centers of the European Union, the University of Luxembourg’s innovative new bilingual (English/French) Master in European Governance distinctively combines:

  • a strong core of teaching on European Politics and Policy
  • a broader interdisciplinary curriculum on European integration;
  • a series of practitioner-led seminars providing unique insight into the processes of European decision-making.

The Master’s degree builds upon the research programme in European Governance established in 2004, which brings together over 25 collaborators (http://europa.uni.lu).
