The Postgraduate Studies Programme (MSc) “European Societies and European Integration”  explores the relationship and differences between the social, legal, institutional, economic and cultural practices of societies and institutions both within the European Union and in neighbouring countries, in terms of national identities, social movements, economic structures, legal orders, social transformations, democratisation processes, religion and modernisation. This is a clearly interdisciplinary approach, which allows for a comprehensive knowledge of the processes of European integration and the essential content of the European integration process at national and supranational level.

The courses are taught entirely at a distance and last for 3 semesters (2 semesters of courses and 1 semester for the thesis).

Our students have also the opportunity to participate in the actions
