Programme profile

Are you interested in solving problems that transcend national borders? Do you want to understand society? Do you dream of a career in an international organisation, working on transnational programmes, in businesses or in public organisations that deal with transnational social issues? Or would you like to pursue an academic career, working on highly-relevant societal problems?

If so, this is the right programme for you! You will encounter various subjects relevant to international challenges addressed in public administration, sociology, management, law, economics and international relations.

EUR's educational method of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) will challenge you to apply academic theories to concrete problems and will help you to study more effectively. Class discussions will strengthen your bond with fellow students and teach you to deal with conflicting perspectives.

Programme content

Your first year consists of courses that help you build knowledge of social challenges (for example globalisation, public policy, organisation and management, and international law) and how to manage or research them (such as research design and organisation & management). . In the first year most seminars are organised according to the problem-based learning method, meaning you will apply theoretical knowledge by solving problems.

During your second year, you will develop more in-depth knowledge and further improve your skills. You follow courses in political science, international migration, global development issues, qualitative research methods and network governance. At the end of the year, you will use the knowledge you will have acquired on research methods and the (management of) social challenges to conduct your own research in a small group. You will report on your findings in a research paper.

The third year of the programme starts with a minor which allows you to specialise in a field of your choice. You can choose to follow a minor at Erasmus University, go on exchange and study at one of our partner universities, or do an internship at an international public organisation
