Choosing European Studies

European Studies are intended to shed light on the widest possible range of topics: from politics to business studies; from demography to the environment and cultural heritage.

Europeans uphold values – like democracy, the rule of law, tolerance and respect – that have evolved over hundreds and thousands of years on the European continent. Europeans, all the way from Spain to Poland, and from Sweden to Malta, share common traits in their respective cultures and heritage.

Students interested in current affairs and issues such as human rights, wealth and poverty, the economy, trade and commerce, communications, globalisation, emigration, tourism and sustainable development, will find European Studies to their liking.
