About the MA Contemporary European Studies

The Euromasters programs offer a genuinely outstanding and unrivalled international learning experience, qualifying graduates for a wide range of top jobs in European and international institutions.

The programs are unique, in that students study at two or three different sites chosen from a group of prestigious world-class institutions, together with students from a wide range of different countries.

Students will gain a broad comparative understanding of European Union (EU), US politics, policy and social evolution as well as specialist knowledge of key issues in the Euro-Atlantic area.

Students take two taught semesters at one or two partner sites, after the opening Core Module at Bath, followed by the completion of a 15,000 word dissertation, to be submitted by September in the second year.

Students who successfully complete the program will receive an MA degree which is jointly awarded by the University of Bath on behalf of the Euromasters Consortium and which is fully recognised in the countries of all participating universities and throughout the EU and beyond.
