Programme profile

Europe is complex. In order to fully understand Europe and the European Union, more than one national or scientific perspective is required. European Studies at Malmo University provides you with a multidisciplinary approach to Europe in an international setting. During the programme you will work actively with cross-border cooperation during the courses and in your research. The programme is built to give students a real experience of European mobility together with historical perspectives and knowledge about how the EU functions.

During the second year you will have an opportunity to study abroad and/or do an internship giving you practical experience outside the traditional classroom setting.The programme will enable you to work in regional and national organisations that seek people with knowledge and understanding of European institutions, histories and culture.
