The European Studies programme from London School of Economics and Political Science focuses on the history, politics, policies and institutions of the European Union; on the ideas which underpin the European project; and on the political, economic and social challenges facing Europe. Courses are multidisciplinary and you will choose options from international relations, history, economics, law, philosophy and political science, all with a strongly European focus.
Your first year is spent at Sciences Po, in the Master Affaires Européennes (Master of European Affairs); the second year takes place within the European Institute at LSE, studying either MSc Culture and Conflict in a Global Europe, MSc Political Economy of Europe or MSc European and International Public Policy.
Graduates of the programme pursue successful careers in politics, journalism, diplomacy, business, academia and consultancy, in the EU institutions, national administrations and the international institutions.
