In 1999, researchers from the University of Gothenburg, who were focusing on Europe, took the initiative of starting what was to become the European Studies Programme. The background to this was the recent Swedish membership in the EU which created a need for persons with deep knowledge of Europe and the EU. The purpose was to offer prospective students a multi-disciplinary programme which integrated historic, political, sociological and economic perspectives on European integration.

Initially, the programme was a four-year master’s (magister in Swedish) degree programme, but after the Bologna process came into force in 2007 the programme was split into two, the three-year Bachelor’s Programme in European Studies (only in Swedish) and the two-year Master's Programme in European Studies. Since 2016 the Centre for European Studies also offers a twoyear Executive master's programme in European Studies.
