Europe has long since become a “Europe of Knowledge“. Without knowledge about the political, legal and economic bases of the European Union, a “national” or “European” career can hardly be considered. International and European institutions, and even law firms and large companies increasingly expect their staff to be familiar with principles and issues governing the EU. For young people starting their careers, this not only means that they need to add a European dimension to their own academic discipline, and continuously transcend and expand the limitations of their field of expertise, in order to be - and remain - able to compete at European level.
The postgraduate course in European Studies is jointly offered by the Freie Universität Berlin and the Technische Universität Berlin. Over the course of a year this compact postgraduate course provides valuable insights into European issues and prepares the students for working with these issues in practice. The interdisciplinary approach equips students with knowledge in the following areas:
International and Interdisciplinary Approach
Every year, 25 fellows are selected from the pool of highly qualified applicants from all over the world. They are taught by leading experts in law, economics and social sciences from Berlin’s three renowned universities, as well as by high-level academics and practitioners from Germany and abroad. The classes are held in English. Upon successful completion of the course, 60 credit points under the European Framework are attributed. Through its international and interdisciplinary approach, the course contributes to there being more excellently trained young professionals in international organisations.
Berlin, capital of Germany and one of the main stages for political and cultural activity is a connecting point between Eastern, Western and Central Europe and as such a particularly attractive location for this course. Specific benefits are:
The European Union as a Political Union
The European Union as an Economic Union
The European Union as a Legal Community
