Institute for European Studies, University of Malta The MA in European Integration is a degree programme that allows individuals with direct experience of working in EU affairs or highly specialised, motivated graduates to undertake targeted research in areas relating to the EU and integration and which, through applied research, would lead to substantive work which contributes to our knowledge of EU affairs as well as contributing to the good of society. It need not be added that the range of research topics will also depend on the availability of Institute staff in providing the necessary supervision. In this way, the MA by Research breaks from the Institute’s traditional approach of seeking to create informed generalists and aims to take candidates with a substantial background in EU affairs and produce highly specialised graduates with applied knowledge in their chosen area of research.
The degree programme combines both a taught element and research. During the course, students will follow two courses, one on political science and economics and one on research methodology. The student must pass these compulsory credits. At the same time, the student will be working on his/her dissertation which will be submitted at the end of the third semester.
