The programme of studies aims to provide you with a solid and comprehensive knowledge of the European Union from a multi-disciplinary angle, involving the politics, economics, law and history of European Integration. The degree programme also allows you to focus on two major areas of study chosen from a list of study-areas offered by other faculties and university entities. Another aim is to develop your analytical skills and to deepen your critical appraisal of EU policies and EU affairs in general. Special emphasis is also laid, where appropriate, on the deepening of knowledge of the theories and theoretical frameworks employed by the various disciplines in assessing EU policies. During the course, you will have the opportunity to participate in the Erasmus+ mobility programme for a more holistic and multicultural academic journey.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:
• Assess and analyse policy developments in the EU. • Write reports on such developments and recognise the developing trends. • Make presentations or report EU developments succinctly.
• Understand human diversity, behaviours and ideas through time. • Use your biological, cultural, historical and linguistic perspective to understand anthropology related studies. • Use your knowledge and familiarity with the theories and history related to the discipline for a rich anthropological perspective.
If you are a mature student in mid-career or a student seeking to learn more about European Studies and Contemporary Mediterranean Studies, then this is the ideal course for you.
As a graduate in European Studies, you will be able to find jobs in the EU institutions, international organisations, government ministries (where our alumni have been detailed to work on EU related projects or units working on EU initiatives), in the diplomatic service, the media, teaching, and the enterprise and business organisations. If you will be in possession of a good Bachelor of European Studies qualification, you will be admitted to read for a higher degree, usually at Masters level in European Studies or closely related areas requiring a strong knowledge of European Studies. While many of our alumni have graduated with their Masters at the University of Malta, as a European Studies graduate, you will be able to gain admission to Universities overseas.
This programme of study will prepare you for a wide range of anthropology related careers, both locally and abroad. These include working at museums, non-profit and community-based organisations, international development, organizational psychology, governmental work, marketing and forensics. If you are more inclined towards an academic career, we encourage you to further your studies by pursuing a post-graduate programme that our University offers, as a number of alumni have done so.
Students who wish to participate in an ERASMUS exchange are encouraged to do so during the second semester of the second year of the course or during the first semester of the third year of the course.
