“The programme gives students the tools to see how Europe has become Europe, and how there can be different, even conflicting perspectives. The contemporary and historical role of Europe in the world is viewed from the standpoint of political, cultural and historical research – all in the same programme." Lotta Lounasmeri is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Centre for European Studies and a lecturer in the International Master’s Programme in European and Nordic Studies at the University of Helsinki. The programme gives a multidisciplinary insight to the Nordic countries from a European perspective and to Europe from a Nordic perspective. You will learn to understand what lies behind the tensions, challenges and possibilities that are manifesting themselves today. You can apply to our International Master’s Programmes as of 3 December 2018 until 11 January 2019.
