Innovative offers for master's education

CIVICA brings together 72,000 students & PhDs and 13,000 academic staff from ten world-renowned higher education institutions across Europe. The alliance is working towards a true European campus that is both physically and digitally connected. 

At master's level, CIVICA members are building on existing, successful programmes to design the future of master's education in the social sciences. An increasing number of students from the alliance will be able to benefit from innovative formats such as joint master's courses, the Europeanship multicampus course, and a European Policy Lab.
