Why choose Natolin?
The MA in European Interdisciplinary Studies at the Natolin campus of the College of Europe in Warsaw is designed to respond to the growing need for experts in European integration processes and EU external relations who can provide imaginative responses to today’s most complex national, regional and global challenges. Students are trained to think beyond disciplinary boundaries while gaining in-depth knowledge in EU public affairs and policies, external relations, the EU’s neighbourhood and European history and civilization. In short, we aim to provide our students with a 360o view of Europe and its place in the world.
The campus in Warsaw is ideally situated to acquire a good understanding of the political, social and economic challenges in Central and Eastern Europe and neighbouring countries. The programme fosters excellence in research through the academic expertise of its two established Chairs: one in European history and civilization, another on the European Neighbourhood Policy and the EU’s neighbours, as well as through the academic expertise of its renowned international faculty. Two intensive study trips in Europe and its neighbourhood, in addition to international academic competitions, provide students with invaluable field experience. VIP events and other extracurricular activities are organized throughout the year.
Both the interdisciplinary programme and its professional dimension prepare graduates for the international, European and national public sectors, as well as the non-governmental and private sectors. They may also serve as a step towards a PhD. We aim to educate cross-cultural communicators, innovative negotiators, administrators, analysts, researchers and leaders with multi-disciplinary and contextual, regional and international expertise. Graduates can also draw on a supportive and extensive alumni network.
Natolin students are often graduates in Economics, Law or Political Science, but we also look for graduates in History, Communication Studies and Journalism, Languages, Philosophy or Philology and, more exceptionally, in other unrelated subjects if students show high interest in the academic offer.
