The Comparative Euro-Mediterranean Education Studies course at the University of Malta aims to enrol graduates from education studies and related humanities, and is designed to develop education scholars who are critically aware of educational developments internationally, and who have the skills to analyse such developments in terms of their impact on individuals, groups and societies.

The comparison of education systems heightens the ability to critically analyse national and regional efforts in the development of educational institutions and services, and to consider alternatives that might be more sound and effective. As educational policy-making increasingly falls under the influence of globalisation, and as educational agendas travel across countries and regions through the impact of such supra-national organisations and agencies as the World Bank, the World Trade Organisation, the OECD, UNESCO, and the European Commission, it becomes important to develop an understanding of how education is being shaped, and the directions it is taking in socialising present and future generations, and in preparing them as citizens and workers in an increasingly complex and inter-dependent world.

While the particular focus of the Comparative Euro-Mediterranean Education Studies  Masters at the University of Malta  is on educational developments in the European Union, and in the Mediterranean region more generally, a global comparative perspective is maintained throughout the course.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the course will be able to contribute to national and regional quests for positive policy options and alternatives in addressing common educational challenges. They may expect to be employed by state policy units, by international organisations specialising in education, and by research institutions.
