Master on European Governance is a Master's degree programme organised by the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance of Utrecht University and the Faculty of Social Studies of Masaryk University. The first year is organised in Brno and the second year in Utrecht; moreover, in the course of the studies the joint seminars taught by lecturers from both universities are organised.
“Understand Europe through living it.”
The Master's degree programme in European Governance trains the students to analyse complex problems of European governance from multiple perspectives, including economics, law, political science, and public administration. Moreover, the students will learn to apply abstract knowledge and theory to real-life problems through case studies, simulations, and policy-oriented research projects. In this way, the students will become academic professionals, i.e. experts who can use academic knowledge to analyse and solve complex problems in different contexts and from different perspectives.
Academic stay is a part of the program that is connected with the topic of a diploma thesis. Main cooperating partners are the institutions of the European Union (European Commission, European Parliament, Committee of Regions), the institutions of the member states (typically but not exclusively ministries of foreign or European affairs), NGOs in the Netherlands, in the Czech Republic and other countries.
The unique combination of expertise within the participating Universities offers an opportunity for a challenging international Master's degree programme. It provides students with a sound academic training that prepares them for professional positions in a range of organisations:
local, regional and national governments, which increasingly work within a European context
the EU institutions, such as the European Commission and EU agencies
other international organisations working in Europe
non-profit organisations that are confronted with issues of European governance
firms whose regulatory environment is largely shaped by processes of European governance
programme graduates typically acquire academic-level jobs in private organisations or public organisations in positions such as policy adviser, consultant, or manager or researcher at research and consultancy firms
