Europeanship Multi-Campus Course

Europeanship Multi-Campus Course

Cross-border, interdisciplinary experience at the heart of EU policy challenges

The Europeanship multi-campus course, designed and taught jointly by a team of professors from the alliance, is a flagship initiative of CIVICA for master’s students.

The course critically explores the main European policy challenges and “The Future of Europe” through an innovative format: a series of live online lectures grouped in four modules and integrated with local activities. Additionally, the course spurs students to work in transnational teams to complete a capstone assignment: develop policy solutions to EU-relevant policy problems.

More than 130 CIVICA master’s students have benefitted from this cross-border interdisciplinary experience in the first edition of the course that took place in fall 2021.

The second edition will take place this upcoming fall, starting on 7 September 2022.
