European Studies at AU

In a time of increasing uncertainties, the future of Europe and European integration has become an ever more crucial issue. At present, Europeans are discussing how to cope with a long list of challenges: Brexit, the aftereffects of the financial crisis, the refugee crisis, challenge of populism, border issues, rising austerity and the impacts of climate change. The master’s programme in European Studies at Aarhus University equips students with tools and theories to analyse the current situation in Europe, including the many challenges that Europeans are facing and the potentials for transnational solutions. At European Studies, we focus on the cultural, social and political processes shaping Europe; we examine the character and the role of EU institutions; we look at Europe in a global perspective, and not least, we ask the question of who the ‘Europeans’ really are.

With a Master’s degree in European Studies, you will be are qualified to analyse and work in European institutions, national state administrations, in international organizations and in multinational corporations. The staff at European Studies have wide-ranging expertise within EU policies and institutions, European politics, identity building, gender, intercultural relations, border issues and migration and memory and heritage issues in Europe.
