What is European Studies?

European Studies Maastricht is a four-year Bachelor degree study programme, which focuses on a wide range of subjects that are linked to Europe such as communication, culture, law, politics, marketing and foreign languages. European Studies belongs to the Faculty of International Business and Communication, together with three other study programmes: the International Business School, Oriental Languages and Communication and the School of Translation and Interpreting.

Now that European borders are fading, there is a growing demand on the international labour market for graduates who know from personal experience what it means to study and work in an international environment. People for whom the political and economic structures in Europe have no secrets; professionals who can manage cultural differences and who can be widely employed because of their extensive knowledge in the fields of strategic communication in a public and/or private environment. Professionals who can also communicate fluently in various European languages. Although it may be hard to believe that all of this is covered in just one study programme, this is just so in European Studies.

To prepare you even better for the international labour market, to offer you an international learning environment and to facilitate a possible transfer to an interesting Master's programme abroad, European Studies is fully taught in English. After completing this four-year (full-time) study programme, you will have a Bachelor's degree in European Studies. For the fast track programme, please check this page.
