European Studies MA

Loading...

Our European Studies MA course will give you a detailed understanding of the politics, history, economy and societies of Europe. As a full-time student, you may also take either a French or German pathway, which offers you the opportunity to complete a master’s degree within a year while taking modules abroad. Places on these pathways have separate capacity restrictions.

Key benefits

  • Develop an in-depth understanding of the major interests, institutions and ideas that shape the politics, economics and societies of Europe.
  • Study Europe from a variety of perspectives in an interdisciplinary programme hosted by an interdisciplinary department.
  • Study at a world-class institution, ranked 13th in the world, and 5th in Europe, for politics by the 2023 QS World University Rankings.
  • Learn from world-leading scholars who contributed greatly to King’s College London being ranked first in the United Kingdom for research power in the field of politics and international relations in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework according to Times Higher Education.
  • If you are on the French or German pathways, this MA offers you the chance to spend your second semester in a prestigious institution in France or Germany. Our current partners are the Institut d’Etudes Politiques (Sciences Po) in Paris and the Humboldt Universität in Berlin.
