Master in European Affairs

Program objectives

The Master in European Affairs offers a comprehensive programme of instruction for students keen to embark on European careers, whether in the European or national public sector or in the private sector. It brings together students from over 35 countries and a faculty with the same multicultural profile, comprised of academics, researchers and European or French civil servants, together with the best practitioners from the European "galaxy".

The objectives of this Master are to educate specialists in European questions able to adapt easily to a multicultural and multidisciplinary environment. In order to enhance their curriculum, students have to choose a policy stream among one of the twelve offered by the School.

The Master in Public Policy offers a wide choice of dual degree programs. Students benefit also from the international environment of the Global Public Policy Network (GPPN) chaired by the School.

Students can also attend the preparation for Administrator (AD5) organized by EPSO by following CPCE classes.

Structure of the curriculum 

To equip our students with a multidimensional and panoramic vision, the curriculum is built around a thorough core module in public economics, law, public policy and ethics, with a historical and comparative approach to European affairs. 

The School also offers a broad range of policy streams of specialization in public and European affairs, taught in French or in English, completed by elective courses that examine current policy debates with insight from academics and practitioners, and opportunities offered by the Policy Lab (case studies, simulations, Civic Tech) to bridge the gap between theory and practice, decision and action.

During the fourth semester, students choose between undertaking an internship, studying at a partner university, writing a master thesis or doing an individual project, depending on their professional project. 

Policy streams

For upcoming applicants to the Master's degree: the Policy Stream curricula available on the website correspond to the first and second semesters for first year Master's students in the 2018 - 2019 cohort. The curricula for the third and fourth semesters on the website correspond to the academic program for second year Master's students in the 2017-2019 cohort. The possible differences in the academic requirements and courses offered are the result of modifications in the academic curriculum that took place over the last two years.
