Today, Europeans are more closely connected to one another than ever before. With an MA in European Studies, you will be qualified to analyse, understand and work not only with European diversity, but with all that connects Europeans.
In this programme you will work with European issues using a range of different approaches. You will get to know the EU institutions and analyse cultural, social and political processes in Europe; you will engage with
the question of what Europe really is.
A Master’s degree in European studies gives you a European perspective that you can use in many different contexts:
- International organisations: You can work in European and international institutions, for example, or different interest groups.
- Political institutions: You can work in the EU or in Danish institutions such as the Danish Parliament and regional authorities.
- Teaching: You can communicate your knowledge of European matters at universities, evening classes, folk high schools, upper secondary schools, etc.
- Research and Projects: You can plan and carry out qualitative projects and research on behalf of public and private sector companies.
- The media: You can relay your knowledge of European matters via TV, radio, newspapers and books.
