About the MSc programme

The MSc European Studies (Research) will allow you to combine the study of substantive themes in European integration with a strong methodological training. It will provide you with a methodologically and historically grounded, multidisciplinary analysis of Europe as a political, economic and cultural space. It also analyses European integration and the post-communist transformation process.

You will take courses from a range of options from European Institute MSc degrees, together with intensive research design and methods training. You will use methodology to drive your research and will be supported in developing research questions of real-world relevance. You will be trained in both quantitative and qualitative methods and will learn to apply them robustly throughout your research process, in order to best answer your question. You will also attend a programme of guest lectures from distinguished outside speakers, including business leaders and policy-makers.

This programme will provide an ideal preparation for doctoral study, as well as for successful careers in politics, journalism, diplomacy, business and in international financial institutions.
