Master of European Studies: Transnational and Global Perspectives (MAES)
JEAN MONNET CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE
In the interdisciplinary Master in European Studies: Transnational and Global Perspectives we educate a global elite that understands Europe as a region of historical diversities as well as intense interactions across national boundaries and exchanges with the outside world. We welcome ambitious and talented students from all over the world and various disciplinary backgrounds. International interaction and a top-level interdisciplinary, research based education must enable our graduates to anticipate and find solutions for complex challenges created by a globalising world that transcend national and disciplinary borders.
The actual programme consists of a common trunk, including a master thesis; four specialised interdisciplinary modules approaching different aspects of Europe in the world; and a list of electives.

The transnational scope of the MAES programme was not only evident in the curriculum, which was challenging and flexible, but also in the diverse backgrounds of the students and professors.
