Institute for European Studies, University of Malta The Institute offers two types of Bachelor degrees, both taught over three years of full-time study. Both degrees are accepted as entry qualifications for the Master of Arts in European Politics, Economics & Law. The approach is multidisciplinary involving the politics, history, economics and law of the EU. Students acquire knowledge and competence in, amongst others, the functioning of the EU institutions, EU treaties and laws, the economics of European Integration, European security, the history of European integration, small states and the EU, enlargement, Euro-Mediterranean relations, EU social policy, climate change and EU environmental issues, development studies, the EU’s External Relations and the Common Foreign and Security Policy.
Graduates of the Institute work with the EU institutions, in the public service, in business, the media, consultancy, NGOs. By the end of the course the graduate will have the skills needed to understand the politics, economics and law of the EU and to assess and analyse to a very relevant degree policy developments in the EU, write reports on such developments and recognise the developing trends. With job training, the graduate will be employable in most EU policy related positions requiring no more than graduate skills. He/she should be in a position to make presentations or to report EU developments succinctly.
