The MA in European Politics, Economics and Law from University of Malta includes compulsory study-units in these subject areas and a wide range of elective study-units on key topics, including lobbying in the EU, EU treaties and laws, the politics and economics of European Integration, the EU’s external relations, EU cohesion policy, climate change and current political and economic developments.
The course is taught on a seminar basis and is intended to further deepen students' knowledge of European politics, law and economics so that by the end of the course they can rightly claim to be ‘specialised generalists’ i.e. graduates with a broad knowledge of the EU but with a deeper specialised understanding in particular areas. The aim is to encourage students to develop their analytical and critical skills – something which is aided by the way the seminars are structured.
Career opportunities and access to further studies
Most of the students who are enrolled in the MA are usually students who wish to further their studies at post-graduate level or graduates in employment, often dealing with EU matters and for that reason they find the MA useful in further developing their skills for the position they already occupy.
There are others who follow the MA because it helps them progress in their careers, given that the EU has become such an important factor in most situations or to help them switch their career.
