This master course is designed not only to provide you with advanced knowledge about European institutions and public policies while enhancing employability and aid professional career development.
Throughout the course, participants will learn how to study a wide range of (often contradictory) evidence about EU affairs and policies and develop their own individual judgments and arguments.
This master is interdisciplinary and fosters agile and adaptable thinking about EU affairs which is required for a successful career in Europe.
Organisational and Research Skills
Students are taught to work on their own initiative and show self-reliance. As well as following the curriculum and the set readings for each module, students can define their own research projects and approaches.
Project Management Skills
The intensive nature of the course allows students to learn how to manage increasingly extensive projects from start to finish. This involves managing time effectively, and learning how to prioritise and plan your timetable and actions with specific objectives in mind. The culmination of this growing project management challenge is again the dissertation.
The program teaches how to organize and present arguments effectively both in writing and in oral communication. Submitting written coursework pushes students to express themselves in a concise and professional manner. Participation in seminar discussions builds skills and confidence in oral arguments, and students are also required to contribute to formal presentations and debates, making appropriate use of audio-visual aids.
Students will work with colleagues with different cultural background and in a professional manner. This includes sharing out tasks for greater efficiency, agreeing fair divisions of labour, coordinating joint efforts without a clearly designated leader, and learning how to handle differences in ability or commitment within the group.
