European Studies

European Studies prepares you to be a European professional in strategic communication. You will work in an international environment, either in the public or in the private sector. After your graduation you will have a solid knowledge of Europe, the European Union and multiple languages, as well as intercultural communication skills.

The study programme in short

Now that the European borders are fading, there is a growing demand on the international labour market for graduates who know from personal experience what it means to study and work in an international environment. For who can communicate fluently in various European languages.

European Studies Maastricht offers a four-year bachelor's degree study programme and a fast track programme of three years. European Studies focuses on a wide range of courses such as:

  • European Politics
  • Law
  • Marketing
  • Public Affairs
  • Intercultural Communication
  • Social Media
  • Languages

The programme is fully taught in English and it prepares you for the international labour market. We offer you an international learning environment and will facilitate a possible transfer to an interesting master programme abroad.

Career opportunities
Can you see yourself working as a policy advisor for the European Union? Or are you more interested in Marketing and Communication? After you have successfully completed the European Studies programme, the possibilities are almost endless. As a result of the practice-based and diverse programme, our graduates are trained to be flexible and can be employed widely. In this rapidly changing international world, a profound knowledge of foreign languages and management skills is more than welcome.
