It will equip you with the knowledge and skills to answer these questions and formulate appropriate responses to the challenges they pose. In Year 1 you study in UCD with a particular focus on Law and Governance of the EU, and European Political Economy.
In Year 2, you study in the Utrecht University in the Netherlands and complete a research internship as part of your masters thesis, which is co-supervised by both universities.

In the final semester, all students write a thesis as part of a research internship within an organisation that deals with issues of European governance. This can be an EU organisation in Brussels or an organisation working at the national, regional or local level. The dissertation is supervised jointly by UCD and the University of Utrecht.
