Course Overview

Innovation is the driving force behind this degree programme in terms of teaching methods and material. A great share of students’ time is organised into three types of sector-based learning programmes designed to provide for theoretical knowledge to begin with, with fieldwork and research into the global political setting, the European governance and the Euro-Mediterranean relations.

It is a full-time degree programme entirely delivered in English with a compulsory attendance policy because of the interactive nature of its teachings. Addressing current issues in classroom discussions, writing papers, conducting case studies, doing thematic presentations, practising simulations, doing internships, and spending time abroad are key elements of a participatory method that has been in place for the program for the past twelve years.

In addition to the above, it is a dual degree, meaning that students will have to spend six months of their time in one of the partner universities throughout the second year.

Job Opportunities

At the end of this master’s degree programme, postgraduate students will have the right set of skills and expertise to begin a successful career in any of the public, private and non-profit sectors dealing with admin work, consultancy, mass communication and research.
