The call for specialized knowledge of the European Union and Transatlantic Relations has never been greater. The growing union encompasses 30 percent of the world’s economy and is America’s largest trade partner. Governments, businesses, and non-profit organizations worldwide are recognizing the need to understand and collaborate with this diverse and complex community. The EUC’s Master of Arts in European Union Studies and other academic program opportunities offer graduate and professional students critically needed expertise, international exposure, and life-long opportunities to grow international and rewarding careers in public, private and non-profit sectors.


The EUC offers the only Master of Arts in European Union Studies (MAEUS) program in North America. We also offer a five-year BA/MA track in collaboration with Europe-oriented degrees in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and opportunities to pursue joint professional degrees, such as a MAEUS/MBA. The EUC offers a range of graduate and undergraduate courses in EU Studies under the EURO rubric, strong connections with European partner universities for study abroad and internship opportunities, FLAS fellowships for academic year and summer, and pre-professional opportunities such as the Model EU competition and engagements with the consular corps, government officials, and private sector, trade, and business representatives.
