The European dimension is playing a growing role in social and economic affairs, in lawmaking and in the political lives of Member States, and has an increasing influence - directly or indirectly - on the lives of European citizens.
The Master in European Studies aims to prepare students for positions where this European dimension is important.
Graduates may work as advisers, representatives, analysts, managers or in posts in organisations and bodies in some way connected with the European Union. They will be asked to take a thoughtful, critical stance vis-à-vis Europe, based on the knowledge and analytical elements needed to grasp and evaluate the European integration process.
Many possible careers will be open to them, in both the public and private sectors.

Course: "European Governance and societies"
The study programme is made up of a core curriculum representing 90 credits, as well as one professional focus of 30 credits. The annual block 1 provides the basic legal, economic, historical and political knowledge necessary to move on the professional focus and to embark upon the writing of a dissertation. Further methodological teaching, thought-provoking discussions and language study enhance the course. The introduction to information and documentation provides help in researching documentary sources, the interdisciplinary seminar 'Thinking Europe' puts forward a possible cross-cutting approach to the various disciplines, and the learning of another language, on top of French and English, gives students the chance to expand their knowledge of European languages.
For a programme-type, and regardless of the focus, options/or elective courses selected, this master will carry a minimum of 120 credits divided over two annual units, corresponding to 60 credits each.
