Johanna Breuer, Student Ambassador Research Master European Studies

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.”
