Short description

The one-year Master in Advanced European and International Studies - Trilingual studies (English, French and German) aims at giving students an overarching, encompassing vision of the political, social, economic, and cultural challenges of today’s world. The Master’s programme follows an original approach which distinguishes it from other Master’s courses in European Studies and International Relations: The MAEIS is an international, interdisciplinary and itinerant programme.

Following the slogan “Learning and living Europe in three languages”, the participants rotate each trimester, moving their place of studies from Nice to Canterbury and then to Berlin.

The teaching modules include:

  • International Relations 
  • European Integration 
  • Federalism and Governance 
  • Economy and Globalisation 
  • Professional Skills Workshops
