European Studies

Major economic, political and social challenges are increasingly being met with European solutions. Europeanization is profoundly transforming local, regional and national circumstances in Europe. Europe is developing a single voice at the global stage. Do you want to learn more about the impact of Europe?

European Studies deals with key European challenges and dilemmas: economic and political integration, environmental management and conflicts, the rights, obligations and access to a European citizenship. One term is dedicated to internship or elective courses. The programmes have a history of students pursuing successful internships at major EU-institutions, the United Nations, Foreign ministries and other public or private organizations and companies.
