European and European Union Studies


Qualifications

Overview

Studying Europe from afar has a number of advantages – of perspective, comparative analysis, and of isolation from short-term trends. Europe provides an important cultural and linguistic reference point to Aotearoa New Zealand in an increasingly global community. The European Union (EU) is Aotearoa's most significant bilateral partner after Australia and China, and is one of the world's leading political and trading blocs, with 27 member states and over 500 million people.

European and European Union Studies aims to offer a broad-based, interdisciplinary programme that embraces the studies of the institutional, legal, political, economic, and social aspects of the integration process of the EU as well as the languages and cultures of Europe. The programme encourages the study of European languages within this framework.
