European Studies is an international Master's programme offered by Heinrich Heine Universität Düsseldorf. The programme’s aim is to educate students on how the European Union works and how the EU managed to build a “working peace” in Europe after centuries of war.

Learning outcomes

As a special feature, the programme seeks to link Europe and the Middle East. There are two main reasons for this:

The Middle East needs more experts on European affairs because the EU is significantly intensifying its ties with the region in the course of the European Neighbourhood Policy.

Studying and experiencing Europe’s "working peace" could contribute to the peace process in the Middle East.
