The European Studies and European Languages and Culture (Hons) programme from University of Dundee is part of the European Institute for Security and Justice, a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence that is co-funded by the European Union.

This degree programme has many distinctive features with regards to module combinations and specialisations and we have been commended for our strong interdisciplinary approach. 

During your studies you will have opportunities to combine perspectives from economists, geographers, historians, linguists, philosophers, cultural study specialists, as well as political analysts.

We will give you the historical background, but you will also look at issues that matter in Europe now, such as integration, migration, cultural identity, economic policy and governance.

The focus of the core courses is Europe-wide, including Russia, and the wide range of optional modules allows you to specialise. You can choose from a wide range of additional modules from other Humanities subejcts and related fields.


As a European Studies graduate, you will have gained a range of transferable skills during your studies including skills in research, written and oral presentation, and intercultural communication and mediation.

The graduates work in a range of areas including education, archives, politics, government services, journalism, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and European Union bodies, with some starting their own business.
