The European Studies, Double Degree-University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill programme of the University of Gothenburg focuses on contemporary Europe and the transatlantic relationship. Students learn about European integration, EU institutions, and comparative welfare states. They focus on the pressing concerns Europe and the transatlantic relations face today such as climate change, economic and social inequality, digitalization, security, globalization, and migration. Training in the methods of social science, critical inquiry and cultural adaptability prepare students to be independent analysts. We engage with alumni to provide current students opportunities to network with graduates who pursue careers in business, education, international diplomacy, politics, law, and research.
Favoring students’ initiatives, choice, and activitiesMandatory courses familiarize you with research in comparative welfare studies, European integration, EU institutions, and social science methods. The courses have problem-based research assignments that enable you to train your capacity in critical reflection and independent written and oral presentations. In addition to the mandatory courses, you choose from elective and semi-elective courses to style your studies by focusing on areas that fits your individual interests.
