Where do we need more and where less Europe? What can Europe contribute to global, sustainable and socially just development? These and other questions are covered in European Union Law master level programme. Students learn methodological skills and apply these to practical situations.
The program encourages students to develop a comprehensive understanding of the complex interactions taking place within the European economy and European society. The program provides insights into the discipline of European law and it takes into account economic and sociological point of view by focusing on the interdependencies between economic trade, legal frameworks, and the social consequences for European states and cross-border societal development within the European Union and its neighbours.
One special feature of the programme is the research project in the third semester. Students have the opportunity to work in research groups attached to faculty chairs or at an associated research facility and develop their own research proposals in the various colloquia on offer.
This study programme is in English.
