European integration - F710357

Specific course requirements

The course European Integration is a third-year Bachelor course, providing political, economic and legal perspectives on the EU’s integration processes.

The aim of the course is to develop critical and analytical skills among students so that they can evaluate EU affairs in the context of broader economic, political and legal changes.


Students are expected to have knowledge of the functioning of the EU, including its institutions, how decisions are made and the legal basis for action at the EU level. They are expected to have a general interest in EU affairs, and to take the initiative in following the events in the EU.


The course discusses European Integration through an examination of a different policy domain each week, with a combination of a lecture and student-led seminar discussions. The course also includes a simulation game.

Evaluation methods include a short paper and a final, written exam.
