Master's Programme of European Studies, Humanities Track

Europe as a political project is confronting some of its most decisive challenges. From a common climate agenda, to Brexit, to a wavering euro and growing national and xenophobic movements in Europe, development is questioning the form and reach of the European common. At this programme we study these questions and challenges from an arts and humanities perspective.

The aim of the programme

We discuss Europe as a political project, with a historic - as well as contemporary critical gaze. The aim is to provide students with the critical tools and key scientific debates for understanding Europe as an idea, its cultural heritage and organization of power. The program-track is a collaboration between the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Social Science, and teachers from such discipline as history, history of ideas, political science, history of economy, sociology and theory of science are engaged in teaching. 

A multi-disciplinary milieu

As a student you will be part of a multi-disciplinary milieu, characteristic of Centre for European Studies (CES), and with a close collaboration with the Centre for European Research at Gothenburg University (CERGU). The study-milieu composed by CES and CERGU offers you a unique possibility of combining historic and theoretical knowledge with contemporary social and political perspectives on today’s challenges.

The program is taught in English, and gathers students from all over the world. HMAES educates for a future career as a political and social analysists, as investigator within the cultural sector and for jobs within the European administration.

Welcome to a multifaceted and demanding study-milieu, that offers you much more than academic quality!
