Что я буду изучать?

The Master's programme in European Studies provides in-depth knowledge of the multiplicity of forms and degrees of European integration and cooperation, how they came about, and what implications this has for governance and democracy in Europe. Norway and its unique relationship to the EU through its joint participation in the EEA and the European Free Trade Area (EFTA) is an important focal point of the MA in European Studies.

Programme components

The programme has 120 sp (ECTS) worth of components and has a normal length of study of four semesters (two years).

Courses and curriculum

The Master's programme in European Studies is a full-time, two-year study programme, worth 120 credits (ECTS). The programme is structured around three central foci that are closely connected to the overarching theme of the Bachelor in European Studies, namely “Differentiated Europe: Integration, Cooperation and Conflict”.

First, EU integration-related issues are investigated in courses, such as “The Political Economy of Integration” and “Governing Europe: Societal Actors, Networks and Lobbying”. Second, the variety of cooperation arrangements existing within the EU and between the EU and EEA members as well as non EU/EEA countries are examined in “Dealing with the EU from the Outside” and “The EU as a Global Actor”. Third, “Contesting Europe” explores the conflicts that arise from the ever more topical contestation of European integration and cooperation by key societal actors.

In addition, the MA in European Studies includes a comprehensive research trajectory. “Research and Project Planning” and the MA thesis provide students with the methodological and practical skills necessary for successfully writing a longer, research-based academic study of the highest quality. In the second semester, students are strongly encouraged to spend a semester abroad to take courses complementary to the MEUROPA curriculum or do an internship in Norway or abroad.

Career Prospects

The MA in European Studies prepares for professions and careers for which knowledge of contemporary Europe and the European Union is essential.
