European and Nordic Studies programme will train you to become a critical thinker, who is well informed about European issues. You will learn to do independent and creative analytical projects in a multicultural environment. It will hopefully also help you to grow more wise and compassionate in the face of our current societal problems.
There is currently a great need for professionals like this within the public and private sectors. The programme will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue work in higher education, local and national administrations, the media, the European Union, Nordic regional and international institutions, non-governmental organisations, and the business sector.
European studies graduates from the University of Helsinki have begun careers for example in the European Commission, European Parliament, Committee of the Regions, European NGOs, College of Europe, communication offices, and associations promoting Nordic cooperation. You will meet some potential future employees, as well as alumni from our university, in the visits organised in the framework of our programme. You will also have the opportunity to complete an internship during your studies.
