Do you want to broaden your knowledge of European politics and policies in a programme that combines the study of political science with international relations, history and sociology? Are you ambitious, with a keen motivation to pursue a career that requires strong research competences, such as in a think tank or in academia, or jobs in politics and journalism? And are you interested in being part of a small, close-knit community of students and researchers? If so, the two-year interdisciplinary European Studies programme is the right choice for you.
More information about graduation packages can be found on the "Courses & Curriculum" page.

Johanna is from Germany: “I’m very interested in political science and mostly theories. After my Bachelor’s degree in European Studies at the University of Passau in Germany, I wanted to pursue an English-taught Master study because you’re better prepared for the future. I’ve already learned more than during my years as a bachelor. My ambition after my Master’s degree is to pursue a PhD and to work in the academic environment.”
“This Research Master teaches you to understand the problems and challenges the EU faces.”
