Master's programme in European Studies
- 1 Dec/1 Mar/15 Apr Apply before
The Master's programme in European Studies provides students with 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 with the European Union (EU) through its joint participation in the European Economic Area (EEA) and through the European Free Trade Area (EFTA) is an important focal point of the MA in European Studies. The MA also equips students with advanced research and analytical skills both in preparation for writing the thesis but also in analysing the EU’s policies and processes. The programme creates the ideal framework for a multitude of career options in Norway, within the EEA and elsewhere.
Admission to the Master requires a Bachelor in European Studies, Humanities or Social Sciences, or equivalent approved degree. A basic knowledge of the EU as a political system, the EU as a political actor, European (integration) history, culture and integration theories is required.
The MA in European Studies prepares students for global employment opportunities for which knowledge of contemporary Europe and the European Union is essential.
The programme has 120 credits (ECTS) worth of components and has a normal length of study of four semesters (two years).
Eureka, the student association for European Studies, organizes various extra-curricular activities, both social and academic.
