The Department of European & International Studies formally launched in September 2011.
It developed out of a collaboration among several departments dating back to 1992, and is distinguished by its broad interdisciplinary approach to the study of modern European and international politics and political economy. It is located within the Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy.
The Department of European & International Studies has been expanding in recent years.
We have particular strengths in the analysis of European integration and governance, especially economic and monetary union and foreign policy, as well as international political economy.
Our dedication to international excellence in research and teaching is reflected in the high calibre of our students, recruited from a large and highly-competitive field of candidates from many parts of the world.
Aside from their teaching and research duties, many of the academic staff in the Department also provide a number of administrative support roles to our students.
After graduation many of our students have gone on to work for governments, international organisations or continued with further study around the world, from Brussels to Bosnia, Geneva to California, and Tokyo to Washington.
We aim to produce leading research that impacts public and political spheres.
