This programme provides you with further knowledge and a deeper understanding of Europe and the European Union today and historically, including its position and role from the global perspective. You will be introduced to a variety of disciplines and perspectives on Europe, with a combination of theories and insights from the fields of political science, history, geography, law, culture, and literature. The programme will prepare you for a career in regional and national administrations, EU institutions, or elsewhere in private, public and NGO sectors. It also provides a solid foundation for further master’s level studies.
Until recently, our generation was the first in hundreds of years to grow up in a Europe without war. That changed in 2022 when Russia invaded Ukraine, and Europe is now facing new threats and challenges. At the same time, the early 21st century has seen divisions and constellations challenging the accepted European order of the last 60 years. By participating in the European studies bachelor’s programme, you will gain knowledge and understanding of the continent's complex and diverse politics, societies and cultures, from past to present.
The Bachelor in European Studies combines perspectives, theories, and issues from the fields of political science, history, geography, law, culture, and literature studies. Europe is complex and it plays an increasingly important role in our lives. To fully understand the continent and the EU, more than one national or scientific perspective is required. This three-year bachelor's programme provides you with a multidisciplinary approach to Europe in an international setting.
During the programme, you will work actively in the courses and in your research, cooperating with actors both inside and outside the academic world; locally, regionally, nationally and on a wider European level.
The academic approach closely connects to current events in the European sphere. Teaching methods include lectures, group work, simulations, debates, theme studies, and self-study of literature.
During the second and third years, you will have the opportunity to study abroad and/or do an internship, which will offer you practical experience outside the traditional classroom setting. Malmö University cooperates with many universities to provide our students exchange opportunities.
This programme is ideal for those seeking to start or advance a career in regional and national administrations, various EU institutions, or elsewhere in the private, public and NGO sectors seeking to employ people with knowledge and understanding of the European institutions, politics, and societies. The programme also provides a solid foundation for further master’s level studies.
