Master in European Governance

Taught in the heart of one of the principal institutional centres of the European Union, the University of Luxembourg’s innovative Master in European Governance distinctively combines:

  • a strong core of teaching on European Politics and Policy
  • a broader interdisciplinary curriculum on European integration;
  • a series of practitioner-led seminars providing unique insight into the processes of European decision-making.

The University of Luxembourg is internationally recognised as a leading centre for the study of European integration, European Union governance and European politics more generally. The University of Luxembourg is a member of the prestigious Europaeum network and hosts a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence.





The principal objective of the Master in European Governance is to educate experts in European public policy, providing an advanced-level training in Political Science complemented by a wider interdisciplinarity. The programme permits students:

  • To acquire an advanced-level knowledge of the functioning of the institutional system of the European Union, as well as of a wider range of European public policies (particularly in the areas of economic, social and environmental policy).
  • To benefit from a solid disciplinary grounding in Political Science complemented by an awareness of interdisciplinary research methods
  • To develop transferable skills (data analysis; report-writing; oral presentation, etc.)
  • To familiarise themselves with the working methods of the European institutions and/or of private sector firms (including internship possibilities)
  • To profit from the experience of an English-language programme with French-language options, situated within a wider multilingual context

Teaching Languages 

The programme is principally taught in English.

Both English and French may normally be used for the completion of written coursework.
