Development Studies in Europe
Now in its 11th year, the EuroMaster provides students with an advanced academic, theory-based understanding of the policies, the institutions and the socio-economic processes in the European Union.
The EuroMaster is an interdisciplinary programme taught in English geared towards an international range of young and mid-level professionals as well as advanced students from across the political sciences. It provides students with advanced academic training across a wide range of EU policies and concepts in order to gain a thorough understanding of the process of European integration in both its economic and political dimensions. The Programme operates as a ‘Master after Master’, requiring students to have strong and consistent marks across a minimum of 4 years of study.
The EuroMaster offers a common core of courses on the essential features of European Integration. Students can choose between two specialisation streams:
The EuroMaster is oriented towards both full-time students as well as professionals, who seek to deepen their understanding of the EU. For this purpose the Euromaster classes are organised after working hours to enable both full-time students and professionals to attend the lectures.
Our location in Brussels
Our location in Brussels, the 'Capital of Europe', offers exceptional opportunities for networking and contact with EU decision-makers.
The composition of the faculty is a balanced mix of high level European officials and other policy makers (all of them have also a research background and a PhD.) as well as VUB/IES staff specialising in European issues. Students can benefit from the support and expertise of the faculty staff and from the research activities at the IES.
