https://www.euromasterinbrussels.eu

The MSc European Integration and Development (EuroMaster) is an advanced Master, interdisciplinary programme offered by the Institute for European Studies (IES) in cooperation with the faculty of Economic, Political and Social Sciences and the Solvay Business School.

Programme Setup

The EuroMaster is an interdisciplinary programme taught in English geared towards an international range of young and mid-level professionals as well as advanced students from across the political sciences. It provides students with advanced academic training across a wide range of EU policies and concepts in order to gain a thorough understanding of the process of European integration in both its economic and political dimensions. The Programme operates as a ‘Master after Master’, requiring students to have strong and consistent marks across a minimum of 4 years of study.

This 60 ECTS Advanced Master's programme consist of 4 compulsory courses:

  • Economics of European Integration
  • Policy-making and Interest Representation in the European Union
  • History and Law of the European Union
  • Research Methods Lab

These are followed by a combination of 2 specialisation options that students can select out of a list of 4:

  • European Economy
  • European External Relations and Security Policy
  • Migration and Europe
  • European Environmental Governance

You close off the programme with a Master’s thesis.

In order to allow students to combine this Master programme with their other professional activities, classes are organised in the evenings. The EuroMaster can be followed on a full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 years) basis.

Teaching staff
