Program description

Managing Europe is a complex challenge. The Master’s in European Studies gives you the expertise to operate in this fascinating environment where various levels of government come together.

It’s not just Brussels that needs experts who understand this environment. In national governments, private firms, the non-profit sector and NGOs, there is high demand for professionals with the right knowledge, insights and skills. You can achieve this status by studying the interactions between national and European bodies, their effects and the ideas behind these processes.

You can opt for the excellent one-year European Studies Master’s programme, which has a stronger focus on public administration and policy than most language-based European Studies programmes. It’s an ideal preparation for a world where EU bodies face the task of finding a balance between technological advances and human values: from GSM roaming and permits for nanotechnology to internet privacy.

But your options don’t stop there. You can also take a unique 18-month degree programme offered jointly by the University of Twente and the Institute for Political Science at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, leading to a double Dutch-German degree.

This programme has no specializations. However, within the programme a set of optional courses is offered that deals specifically with European regulation.

European Institutions; International Relations Theory; the Multi-Level Policy Process in the European Union; European Economic Policies; European Union law; European Social Policies.

The European Studies program does not focus solely on the EU in Brussels, but also on the impact of EU politics on Member States. Attention for European governance. Comparison between the structure and policy of European organizations with current and candidate Member States.
