European Studies - Governance and Regulation

European Studies - Governance and Regulation

The European Union (EU) is an economic and political union of currently 28 member states. The impact of the EU on the lives of its citizens and its role globally are marked to a significant degree by the dynamic interplay between governance and regulation. Governance legitimizes regulation and is necessary, for example, to assure the proper functioning of the EU Single Market.

The master’s degree program for continuing education in European Studies – Governance and Regulation is offered by the Center for European Integration Studies (Zentrum für Europäische Integrationsforschung, ZEI) and the University of Bonn. The degree program has an interdisciplinary focus and is oriented toward the pillars of governance and regulation. These two pillars reflect the politological and jurisprudential significance of the problems surrounding European integration. The program is aimed at university graduates with at least one year of relevant work experience who wish to gain further, academically well-grounded qualifications to fill a demanding position at an EU institution, an international or non-governmental organization, a national administration or a national or multinational corporation.

Possible lines of work:

EU organs or institutions (e.g policy consulting, lobbying), IOs, NGOs, national administrations (e.g. parliaments, ministries), private economy (e.g. corporate consulting, human resources, marketing, controlling)

At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
