European studies

European studies is a university program that is offered by a number of universities across the world. Enrolling in this masters program gives the student an opportunity to learn the different issues affecting the European countries. Most of the Universities offer programs that emphasize on European development and policies across the European Union member countries and how to foster unity among the various states in Europe. However, some colleges offer other classes to broaden the program; with topics such as the European culture, the European arts and languages.

The masters degree in European studies is an interdisciplinary program encompassing such topics as political science, linguistics, philosophy and geography. Public policies and the differences in application throughout Europe form the core units of the program. The program was initially offered in European countries and it still is more common in the European states. However, recent developments have seen the program being offered throughout the world, notably in the North American universities and Australasia.

The benefits of enrolling for the masters program are numerous. It offers the student an opportunity to understand the history of the Europeans, their countries and the cultures that paved way for the modern lifestyles. The studies have also been identified as instrumental in fostering patriotism among the Europeans enrolled in the program. With the existence of the European union and liberty to move, live and work within the union’s member states, the students have endless possibilities for places to work and live; effectively making a masters program in European studies quite an attractive package.

Participants of the programme study at each university for one year and graduate with two master’s degrees from the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences, University of Cologne, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Maastricht University. [+]

The Double Master’s Programme in European Studies gives students the opportunity to benefit from the outstanding expertise of two top-ranking universities. Participants of the programme study at each university for one year and graduate with two master’s degrees from the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences, University of Cologne, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Maastricht University. The Double Master is an ambitious research-based and interdisciplinary programme which has a strong focus on the European Union, its institutions and policies. Students develop an in-depth understanding of the EU and of the workings of politics and society in an integrated Europe. The programme equips graduates with excellent methodological skills, enabling them to operate at an advanced level in an international research environment. During their year abroad, students will be exposed to an international environment that allows them to improve their intercultural and language skills. Students admitted to the Double Master’s Programme pursue a Research Master in European Studies at Maastricht University in their first year and complete modules of the Master of Arts in Political Science at the University of Cologne in their second year. The programme is based on the mutual recognition of credit points by both universities. Students attend a colloquium and write their master’s thesis during their year in Cologne. The thesis is jointly supervised by professors at both universities. In cooperation with Maastricht University The Fac­ulty of Arts and So­cial Sci­ences (FASoS) has ap­prox. 1,800 stu­dents and is one of the six fac­ul­ties at Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity. Its ed­u­ca­tional ap­proach is based on the prin­ci­ple of Prob­lem-Based Learn­ing (PBL). The Fac­ulty has a strong in­ter­na­tional ori­en­ta­tion, ev­i­denced by its in­ter­na­tional stu­dent body and its ex­ten­sive re­search. The Fac­ulty has an ex­cel­lent lo­ca­tion in the cen­tre of Maas­tricht. Pro­gramme du­ra­tion: 4 se­mes­ters, full-time Pro­gramme start: Be­gin­ning of Sep­tem­ber in Maas­tricht De­grees awarded: Re­search Mas­ter in Eu­ro­pean Stud­ies by Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity and Mas­ter of Arts in Po­lit­i­cal Sci­ence by the Uni­ver­sity of Cologne Lan­guage of in­struc­tion: Eng­lish Fees: Stu­dents pay tu­ition fees at Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity dur­ing their first year of stud­ies (ap­prox. €1,980 for EU ap­pli­cants; for more de­tails on the tu­ition fee, please see the web­site of Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity) and a se­mes­ter con­tri­bu­tion at the Uni­ver­sity of Cologne (ap­prox. €260 per term, which in­cludes a stu­dent travel card which is valid on all pub­lic trans­port in North Rhine-West­phalia). Career perspectives Graduates of this double degree will be well prepared for the demands of an international employment market in European Studies, which increasingly expects applicants to have studied in more than one country. Graduates of the programme are particularly well qualified for a career in the institutions of the European Union, other areas of public administration or international companies. The research-oriented nature of the degree also enables graduates to move on to doctoral research, or to research-related work in think tanks or NGOs. These career perspectives require familiarity with different academic cultures, and thus graduates with a double degree will be better prepared for these kinds of positions than most of their peers with degrees from a single university. Entry requirements An excellent bachelor’s degree in the Humanities or Social Sciences with strong proficiency in Political Science (30 ECTS). Furthermore a minimum of further 12 ECTS in Political Science or in Methodology and Empirical Social Research Bachelor final grade equivalent to at least 2.7 (German grading system) English at level C1 (CEFR) or equivalent (TOEFL min. ibt 100; IELTS min. 7.0; Cambridge CAE (B) or CPE (C)).

Centre international de formation européenne (CIFE)
Campus Full time 1 year October 2017 Germany Berlin France Nice + 2 more

A unique graduate programme in Global Energy transition and Governance. Anglophone, takes place in Nice and Berlin [+]

The Master in Global Energy Transition and Governance is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Its objective is to give a deep understanding of the complexity of the current energy transformations in Europe and worldwide. The programme takes place in Berlin and Nice. The programme offers a unique, multidisciplinary approach which distinguishes it from other Master’s courses in the field of energy studies: It analyses the links between the different levels of energy governance, from an international to a local level, offering problem-focused learning at the crossroads of theory and practice. The one-year programme stretches over four terms and takes place in two study locations: Nice and Berlin Students who successfully complete the programme acquire 90 ECTS credits. The programme is structured into four terms: The first term (October-December) in Nice encompasses classes on the basics of the four energy modules: International energy governance, Economic energy governance, the EU energy governance and Energy and territories. Each module is complemented by seminars dealing with current energy issues. An academic or professional expert is invited for each event. For their second term (January-March) students move on to Berlin where teaching in the four modules continues in the form of workshops. Each module organises a half-day workshop with an expert. Students prepare the workshops in group work delivering papers on themes linked to the topic of the seminar (climate negotiations, energy stock exchange, the role of the EU interconnections in the European energy market, the EU funds and the territorial energy policy). To better understand the local energy challenges in the framework of the German Energy Transition Field, visits will also be organised in co-operation with local institutions and companies. Another focus of this term will be put on the methodology classes, one dedicated to the research work and the Master’s thesis, the second one to project management. In April students return to Nice. The third term (April-June) aims at deepening their knowledge on the four energy modules. A special focus is also given to the methodological support for the students’ work on their thesis including individual meetings with the academic supervisors. In the two simulations the participants will forge their negotiation techniques with regard to the construction of wind farms at local level and work out of a strategy for an international energy cooperation. Written and oral exams in June will conclude this term. From July to August students will work on their Master’s thesis. All along the summer, supervisors will be at their disposal to follow up their work. The defence of the students’ Master’s thesis will take place in Nice in mid-September. Admission requirements The Programme is targeted at students who have completed their undergraduate studies. Language requirements Candidates must have an active, good knowledge of English.

Campus Full time 4 semesters September 2017 Luxembourg Esch-sur-Alzette

The Master in European Contemporary History gives the right expertise to explore contemporary European issues. [+]

Masters in European studies. A historical perspective is of key importance to tomorrow’s professionals in the academic, business and political world to deal with socio-political issues of the future. The Master in European Contemporary History gives the right expertise to explore contemporary European issues. With its connections to numerous European institutions, several international cultural institutions and numerous international companies situated in Luxembourg, the Master's professional environment is both wide-ranging and stimulating. With the European institutions a stone’s throw away from the Campus, students have privileged access to documentation in the European institutions, to the digital and media library of the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe (CVCE) as well as the EIB archives on Campus. The Master programme puts special emphasis on Digital Humanities and Public History thus offering a unique blend of historical theory and practical application The Master functions in a multicultural European and multilingual teaching and learning environment. It boasts a distinguished teaching staff, including Prof. Leboutte, holder of the Jean Monnet Chair in European history. It provides excellent student support thanks to its small classes, seminar groups, one to one tutorials and series of conferences held by the international experts and key players in the making of Europe. Goals Which practices, institutions, cultural values and interpretations shape the European continent? What is the relation between a political process, i.e. the recent European integration, and wider social and cultural changes? To which extent is 'Europeanisation' a valuable and operable concept? How does the nation-state (a European invention) fit into processes of globalisation and regionalisation? Our Master programme addresses these questions by putting contemporary European issues into historical perspective. Rather than assuming one all-encompassing definition of ‘Europe’, whether cultural or geographical, the programme highlights the different contexts within which the European past and present can be analysed. This allows for a critical understanding of complex social, cultural and economic processes. Career opportunities Successful completion of the Master's degree in European History will provide access to jobs in policy making, cultural consulting, journalism, publishing, teaching and museum curating.

University of Trento School of International Studies
Campus Full time 2 years October 2017 Italy Trento

The programme aims to provide students with those multidisciplinary tools and competences indispensable for a broad-based understanding of economic, legal, political and social transformations in the European and international contexts. [+]

The Master’s programme in European and International Studies (MEIS) is the result of a close interfaculty collaboration of the School of International Studies with the Departments of Economics and Management, Sociology and Social Research, Humanities and the Faculty of Law. The hallmark of the Master’s programme is its strong multi- and interdisciplinary approach, which gives students the opportunity to transcend the confines of traditional academic disciplines. All courses are taught in English, another characteristic that distinguishes the programme from similar ones offered in other Italian and European Universities. The programme aims to provide students with those multidisciplinary tools and competences indispensable for a broad-based understanding of economic, legal, political and social transformations in the European and international contexts. Particular emphasis is given to teaching the tools and skills necessary for the analysis of: the interaction of individual and collective actors both within European and international institutions; the functioning of European and international economic, legal, political and social systems; European and international systems of governance. The MEIS programme attaches great importance to foreign languages which are an essential prerequisite for the development of effective communication skills. Taught courses, language workshops and tutoring activities contribute to developing advanced English language communication skills and develop a working knowledge of at least one additional foreign language (in addition to a basic knowledge of Italian). Alongside the taught courses the School runs a rich series of guest lectures, seminars and talks held by visiting professors of international standing and by professional practitioners working in distinguished international organizations. MEIS students are encouraged to participate in these and the many events organised at the School, including conferences, debates, careers talks and fairs and workshops held by practitioners. Recently, the School has established a Double Degree programme with the Department of International Relations and European Studies of the Metropolitan University Prague (MUP). This programme allows a limited number of selected students to earn a Master’s Degree in International Relations and European Studies from MUP, in addition to the Master’s Degree in European and International Studies from the School of International Studies in Trento. This programme further enriches the wide range of opportunities to spend a period of study abroad through international exchange and Erasmus programmes. The School offers to a few selected students the opportunity to participate in the Integrated Programme in European Policy Studies (IPEPS), organized by the Center for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels. This programme includes a 8-week Masters' module in European policy studies in Brussels in the summer (equivalent to elective courses for 12 ECTS). IPEPS is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme, the CEPS and a few partner Universities in the EU (among which Unitn-SIS). This programme further enriches the wide range of opportunities to spend a period of study abroad through international exchange and Erasmus programmes. Throughout the two years of the programme, tutors provide students with further support and guidance if and when needed. Students intending to enrol on the first year of the MEIS must satisfy a number of academic and linguistic requirements. Students must have some academic background in the core subjects of the programme, and a very good level (B2+) of the English language is required as well as basic knowledge of a second foreign language. For further details regarding entry requirements to the MEIS, please refer to the announcement for the selection procedure, posted on the SIS website available in January each year. Employment and Career Prospects The Master’s programme in European and International Studies prepares students for careers both in the public and the private sectors. Graduates will be qualified to: hold positions of responsibility within national and international institutions engaged in international affairs and private corporations operating in international markets; work for governmental and non-governmental organisations engaged in specific areas of international affairs (such as human rights, peacekeeping, protection of the environment, institution-building, etc); enter the diplomatic service. For those wishing to continue their studies, the Master’s programme provides a solid preparation for admission to international PhD programmes in International Studies and related subjects. Holding a Master’s degree from the School, however, does not provide preferential access to the PhD programme offered by the School. [-]

The Master in European Studies includes 3 possible orientations: "cultures and societies", “economics, politics and societies” and "institutions, law and societies". [+]

Masters in European studies. Master in European Studies The Master in European Studies includes 3 possible orientations: THE ORIENTATION “CULTURES AND SOCIETIES” is part of the legacy of the founder of the European Institute, Denis de Rougemont, for whom culture played an essential role in the construction of Europe. This orientation focuses on the diversity of Europe’s cultural sources, its rich history and its long process of construction. The orientation includes courses in history, the history of ideas, as well as courses which explore the different dimensions of European culture: literature, cinema, intercultural relations, cosmopolitanism, etc. THE ORIENTATION “ECONOMICS, POLITICS AND SOCIETIES” includes courses in political science, sociology and economics. In addition to its focus on the European Union (EU) institutions, internal policies, relations with citizens, the media and security issues, this orientation places particular emphasis on the international aspects of the EU. In relation to economics, the orientation offers unique courses on the economic relations between Europe and the rest of the world, particularly developing countries. THE ORIENTATION “INSTITUTIONS, LAW AND SOCIETIES” focuses on the major role played by law in the process of European integration. The bases, construction, principles and application of European law provide the framework for this orientation. In the context of European integration, European law seems to predate European society. Within this orientation, the issue of how national societies, with their respective laws, and supranational European law can coexist is explored from an interdisciplinary perspective. To complete their degree, students may opt for a work placement or a dissertation. The work placement aims to prepare students for professional activity and requires that students write a final report about the experience gained, while the dissertation prepares students for academic research. Curriculum Core curriculum for the 3 concentrations (30Credits) : European culture European history Political integration European law Economic integration Methodological and interdisciplinary seminar (30Credits) Orientation-specific courses and electives (30Credits) Work placement or dissertation (30Credits) Mobility Master’s students are permitted to go on exchange for one semester maximum, as early as their third semester of study, and may earn no more than 30 credits at another university.
