The aim is to provide students with a high-level training that will place them in optimal conditions to work in the professional or academic field.
The primordial role of this degree in the countries of the European Union is a consequence of the central place that university studies must have for a better understanding of the integration process itself. For this reason, the various degrees in European Union studies are a priority objective for the European institutions and for the Member States.
The Master prepares students for access to competitive examinations and competitions in all areas of the institutions and bodies of the European Union and also mainly for access to Spanish institutions and bodies, both of the central State and of the Autonomous Communities and local authorities.
This Master's degree offers the multidisciplinary approach required for scientific and technical education, transversal skills and lifelong learning that require greater permeability between the different elements and levels of the university education and training systems. It offers four specialisations in particular: Economics/Politics (in Spanish language), Law (in Spanish language), Multilevel European Integration and Fundamental Rights (in English language) and Economy of the EU: Challenges for the 21st Century (in English language).
