Applications are invited for the Master programme in European Studies, beginning in late September 2002 at the Catholic University of Leuven.
The Masterís program in European Studies was established in 1988 on the initiative of different faculties of the University of Leuven. With the growing importance of the European integration, the program wanted to respond to the need for high-level courses on European affairs. The founders of the program opted to offer a broad set of courses, not limiting its scope to the European Union but allowing students to study at the same time the larger European context, with both its similarities and differences. Drawing on the experience of one decade, the European Studies program has been able to raise the quality of the program continuously.
The MA-program in European Studies is an advanced, full-time one-year (two-year for part-time students) study program. As it is primarily oriented towards an international audience of students, the complete program is taught in English. Among other advanced study programs on European affairs, the Leuven program stands out by its interdisciplinary approach. Courses are offered from diverging fields (law, economics, political sciences, history, arts, ethnicity studies). The aim is to approach the European integration process from different angles, combining the insights of different disciplines. This allows students both to study Europe with a broad focus and to deepen their knowledge in a certain field. Eminent specialists, either because of their academic background or because of their prominent role within the European institutions, guarantee the high level and quality of the courses. This interdisciplinary spirit of a program focusing on both the European civilization and on the integration process allows for a critical approach, studying both Europeís unity and its rich diversity, both aspects of integration and of disintegration.
