European Studies at the UvA

Bachelor's programme 

In the bachelor’s programme in European Studies you study contemporary Europe in all its historical and cultural diversity. This programme will provide you with an overview of the politics, economics and law of the European Union (EU), while also introducing you to Europe’s history, literature and culture. Such a broad perspective is crucial to making sense of the challenges facing Europe today, such as the euro crisis, the questions posed by multi-cultural societies, and the role of the EU in, for instance, its relations with the Ukraine and Russia. The bachelor’s programme is offered in both Dutch and English.
