Institute for European Studies, University of Malta The programme of studies aims to provide students with a solid and comprehensive knowledge of the European Union from a multi-disciplinary angle, involving the politics, economics, law and history of European Integration. The degree programme also allows students to focus on two major areas of study chosen from a list of study-areas offered by other faculties and university entities. Another aim is to develop students’ analytical skills and to deepen their critical appraisal of EU policies and EU affairs in general. Special emphasis is also laid, where appropriate, on the deepening of knowledge of the theories and theoretical frameworks employed by the various disciplines in assessing EU policies.
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.
