DESCRIPTION OF SUBJECT

Integrated European Studies are a multidisciplinary degree programme. It deals with the politological and cultural conditions which govern the driving forces of politics and society of Europe past and present (for example crises like Brexit or migration policy in the EU). Subsequent processes of current regional integration in Europe are analysed on this background. The main focus lies on the transformation processes in Eastern Europe, as well as the challenges confronting the European Union. Germany, Poland and Russia occupy a central position in this respect. Both area programmes, Political European Studies and Cultural European Studies have a geographic focus on Europe as a whole. Students are expected to attend courses in Russian, Polish, Spanish or French.

OCCUPATIONAL FIELDS AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Subsequent non-teaching occupational fields

The courses prepare students for a wide choice of careers, ranging from political institutions involved with the European Union to institutions in the cultural field. The career perspectives for graduates with a cultural profile include in particular occupations as analysts, special consultants and public relations specialists in trade organisations, government ministries, EU agencies, and in business, as well as international management consultancy in the European area. Graduates with a cultural profile find career opportunities in particular in culture management, cultural exchange, journalism, tourism, refugee organisations or associated areas of business and politics. Additional opportunities exist in archiving, foundations and language instruction.

Teacher training (Lehramt)

No courses available for students training to be teachers at state-run schools

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS OF PROGRAM

Stages of study / curricula / description of modules

First-year students attend foundation courses on the subject of European integration. The second year builds on these courses. The third year of studies, supplemented with a semester abroad in the fifth semester, serves the individual specialisation combined with course electives.
From the beginning of their studies, students learn both the politological as well as the cultural foundations of their subject. An integrated study phase puts these theories and methods to the practical test by means of concrete case studies. The students also receive language training in Russian, Polish, French or Spanish.
