European Studies will be at the Master Days 2023

13.04.2023 -

Between the 24th and 25th of April, OvGU will be hosting the Master Days 2023.

The event offers all those interested in Master's degrees the opportunity to ask questions and find out about the various Master's degree programmes at Otto-von Guericke University in Magdeburg. The Master's programme European Studies will also be presented online at the fair!


The Master's programme in European Studies will be presented online, on 24 April from 2 pm.

Living in times of crisis and change,  our master's degree in European Studies helps you to analyse, evaluate and influence the policymaking process of the European Union.  Our interdisciplinary lens focuses on a political, sociological and economic or cultural perspective. It puts special emphasis on key analytical skills and the self-organised application of academic and soft skills. Graduates work in national, European or international administrations, companies, foundations, NGOs and associations – or pursue further academic qualifications. The MA is open to students with different prior qualifications - in social sciences, economics and/or cultural studies -  in two, alternative tracks with different requirements and focal points.

Think critically about today's challenges and develop practical solutions with us in Magdeburg.
