Studies

It is the primary goal of this priority programme to contribute to the education of the future academic generation by linking research and teaching in several ways:

Education at SCEUS rests on the Master Programme on European Union Studies which is organised by the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Master Programme addresses students aiming at careers in national and European institutions and companies for which specialisation in the Union’s institutional set-up is essential. It provides for theoretical and practical skills as well as language knowledge. The Master programme in European Union Studies provides students with a practice-oriented education. According to its interdisciplinary approach, it combines courses in European Politics, European Law, European Economic Integration, History of European Integration, Sociology and Communications Science. A special characteristics are interdisciplinary seminars, which aim at simulating decision processes within the European Union. Bargaining and negotiation processes are simulated, with students taking over the roles of relevant actors in the decision process. The main didactic characteristics are a practice oriented problem definition, team work, team-teaching and the inclusion of experts from outside the University.

The further pillar of education at SCEUS is a three year Doctoral Programme which contributes to the training of Europe’s future faculty. It is co-financed by the Swiss Humer-Stiftung and the University of Salzburg. Doctoral students are recruited and selected following international criteria. Doctoral students are taught by internal and co-supervised by external faculty. An international Visitors Programme was established with the help of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence Programme. All doctoral students are to successfully complete one semester at a foreign university department specialised in the pertinent fields.
