EUROPEAN STUDIES, EUROPEAN CONNECTIONS
Europe is becoming more and more important. As Europeans become more closely connected, the EU makes decisions that affect every European nation, every level of industry, and virtually every business.
However, this view of international relations is constantly challenged and discussed. In European Studies , you will learn to analyse both the problems and the possibilities inherent in the European collaboration – and in Europe in general.
You will deal not only with EU institutions, but also with analyses of cultural, social, and political processes in Europe – and the question of what Europe really is.
The aim of the European Studies from Aarhus University is to give you general knowledge of European conditions, political as well as historical and cultural, and to build on the insight you gained in your BA studies.
WORK INTERNATIONALLY AND INTERCULTURALLY
With a Master’s in European Studies, you are qualified to analyse, understand, and work not only with European diversity, but also everything that brings Europeans together. European Studies is an interdisciplinary and multicultural degree programme, and therefore prepares you to work in international organisations, large corporations, and in public administration.
DEPARTMENT OF GLOBAL STUDIES
The Department of Global Studies provides a distinct approach to understanding our contemporary world by combining language-based area studies of Brazil, China, Japan, India, and Russia with European and International Studies and a global perspective.
As an academic field, Global Studies was born only in the late 1990s and it grew exponentially in importance in the 2000s. Its main elements find their root cause in the insight that contemporary global conditions cannot be studied only in terms of states and their interactions.
Taking a holistic approach, Global Studies takes history, cultural studies, and anthropology just as seriously as political science, sociology, and economics.
In step with this approach, we understand nations and regions not as cultural containers, but as globally connected. Likewise, disciplines are understood not as knowledge containers, but as connected ways of addressing similar questions.
Students at the Department of Global Studies grow to become critical and self-confident citizens of the contemporary global world. Graduates are well prepared for work in research, in teaching, in public institutions and ministries, as well as within the private sector, where global competencies, even in small and medium-sized enterprises, are increasingly in demand.
