Councils to ensure educational quality
Centre for European Research (CERGU)
CES cooperates closely with the Centre for European Research at the University of Gothenburg (CERGU). The teaching is therefore always connected to current international research within the field. CES and CERGU together make up a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, which is awarded to complete academic environments with excellence in both teaching and research in the field of European Studies.
The faculty of European Studies
The faculty of European Studies was created in 2014. This group consists of one teacher from each of the disciplines and is tasked with, among other things, continuing an ongoing discussion on the meaning and content of European Studies as a discipline. The group also makes up the core of the group of teachers who assess bachelor and master level theses.
