European Studies lead to much more than one particular profession. As a Europe expert, you can use your knowledge and skills in places where 'Europe' plays a role. This can be the business community, but also, for example, an organization that lobbies the European Union in Brussels for a national cultural institution or government. So you are not limited to the 'European' job market. After your Bachelor's degree in European Studies, you can also continue your studies with a Master's degree in various fields.
European Studies is an accredited degree programme. After completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Bachelor's degree and the title Bachelor of Arts (BA).
