Etudes européennes à Nantes Université

Get ready to learn all about European issues!

Since the academic year 2010/11, the Nantes Université has been running courses that focus on European issues with a pluridisciplinary approach. This 3-year undergraduate programme (BA) is unique in France.

An Innovative and Well-Rounded Degree

Undergraduate students who register for the European Studies BA take 50% of their courses in their chosen Major (Law, English, German, Italian, or History), while the other 50% are devoted to studying European issues through a pluridisciplinary approach.

In 3rd year, students spend one semester abroad in one of our partner universities in Europe.

After 3 years, students may apply for a Master’s degree in European and International Studies, or choose to follow more specialised postgraduate programmes such as Minority Studies, Defence, Heritage Management, Arts and Culture, Journalism, European Business Law, Criminal law, Energy, or Commercial Issues.
