Comments about Master European Studies - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    The degree provides an historical, political, economic and sociological analysis of the major issues in Europe, both east and west. The main emphasis of the course is on developing an interdisciplinary approach, and it will appeal to those seeking a deeper understanding of current developments in the European Union and east/central Europe, including Russia. The process of integration within the European Union, and the recent events in east/central Europe including the former Soviet Union, have emphasised the need for an understanding of the main issues involved in these areas. London Metropolitan University is particularly well placed to offer a postgraduate course in this subject. Building on the strengths of its well-established undergraduate degree in European Studies, it offers a course that combines different perspectives derived from a number of subjects. Staff are actively involved in relevant research, co-ordinated by the London European Research Centre. The library contains the European Documentation Centre (EDC) - a superb resource centre, which includes a vast amount of information, including databases, on European Union topics.
