The Master of Arts in European Studies at University of Cyprus is offered by the Department of French and European Studies in Greek and international languages. Its courses are usually taught in English. According to the linguistic profile of students, some courses can occasionally be taught in Greek or French.


From an academic viewpoint, the programme aims to cover an obvious gap in the programmes offered internationally in the field of postgraduate European Studies. More specifically, it aims to move away from the usual frame of such programmes which are usually based on a dominant politico-economic approach.

Thus, the postgraduate Master of Arts in European Studies at University of Cyprus aims to investigate specific issues related to cultural Europe and to see how these issues relate to the philosophical, literary, visual and other cultural narratives. The programme puts forward ways of studying European cultural phenomena in a synthetic way, combining a specific European conjuncture with its diachronic depth.

From a research point of view, the aim of the programme is for its graduates to be able to carry out doctoral studies in specific fields of European cultural studies, combining them with:

  • European literature studies
  • comparative literature
  • visual and art studies
  • European history
  • sociology
  • anthropology
  • political sciences.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Discourse, Migration, Borders in the European Space 
  • The Elusive Definition(s) of Europe
  • The Discourse of Culture in Europe, from Plato to Popper
  • Which Political Form for which Europe?
  • Tragedy in Europe and Europe in Tragedy
  • European Spirit in the Globalized Era
