Course content

The Europe and the World Double MA course at Aston is an innovative, two year masters programme taught in Birmingham and in Lille, France.

You will develop skills in critical analysis of contemporary European integration in both English and French language and further your practical skills in European issues through undertaking an EU-focused internship during your second year.

You will spend the first year at Aston University in Birmingham in the UK, and the second year at Sciences Po Lille, France, benefitting from a multicultural teaching environment and the combined expertise and experience of teaching staff at two prestigious institutions.

As a student on the Double MA in Europe and the World, you will be able to tailor make the course to suit your interests and future career goals. The core modules focus on providing you with a broad understanding of the important developments within the European polity. You’ll analyse the evolution of the EU, the role of European institutions, recent trends in European politics, economics and society, and the impact of European integration at both national and supranational levels.
