Overview

Theoretical insights and practical solutions

Are you interested in the functioning of EU policy? Would you like to pursue a career in European or international institutions? The European Policy (European Studies) programme of the University of Amsterdam teaches you to translate theoretical insights into practical policy solutions. It combines both theoretical and hands-on, empirical training in order to prepare you for a career as a European policy expert within international and national institutions, but also within the broader context of NGOs and the business world.

Hands-on field experience

Taught by experts from the fields of Humanities, Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Law and Political Science, this programme combines lecture courses with small group seminars and offers a unique Humanities perspective on the diverse factors – ideas, history, culture –  that shape EU policy. It combines theory with hands-on field experience, including a workshop in Brussels as well as an extended field course that examines the ways in which EU policies ‘touch down’ in different national and regional contexts.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Cultures of European Governance
  • Skills Seminar: Brussels
  • Enlargement and External Relations of the EU
  • The Power of Law: Legal Integration in the European Union
