Exekutivt Magisterprogram i Europakunskap
Kort om programmet
Det här är en executive-utbildning i Europastudier som riktar sig till dig som är mitt i karriären, som vill utöka din analytiska kapacitet och bredda dina nätverk. Som student kommer du att skärpa din förmåga att kritiskt och strategiskt hantera komplexiteten i dagens europeiska utmaningar – som energifrågor, migration, sysselsättning, hållbar utveckling, kulturella skillnader och säkerhet. Du studerar på halvtid under en tvåårsperiod, det mesta arbetet görs online.
Europe is facing challenges, both now and in the future. What happens to European cohesion and democratic values when prosperity gaps increase and countries come under pressure of increased migration? Does Europe continue to prioritize being globally competitive, or does it become a pioneer in sustainable development? And how do conflicts on the borders of Europe, and the dependence on oil and gas, give rise to new security risks? Our way of meeting these challenges is through research and education, but we also recognize a need for collaboration between policy-makers, the public, and universities. To this end, the Executive Master’s Programme in European Studies (EMAES) accepts a select group of twenty professionally active individuals in the area of European affairs to work together to address important European issues and to bring their new knowledge back to society.
Study while you continue working
EMAES prepares you with the knowledge needed to address the challenges of our contemporary and future society. It is taught by teachers and researchers at the Centre for European Studies, a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence at the University of Gothenburg. In addition to this, a council of prominent members of the field is tied to the programme, including former commissioner Cecilia Malmström. EMAES is designed for students who wish to remain professionally active while studying. Thus, the programme is part-time and the majority is taught online. You will be expected to come to Gothenburg on occasion to participate in seminars, exams, social events, and to meet your fellow classmates.
EMAES courses present research approaches and offer practical training in research methods relevant to the field of European Studies, allowing you to incorporate your own professional experiences into the curriculum. You will have the opportunity to sharpen your ability to critically and strategically handle the complexities of current European challenges. The studies are interdisciplinary and based on literature, perspectives, and lecturers from various academic disciplines in social sciences, humanities, economics, and law.
