Teaching at the Center for European Integration
Through tuition, students are given the ability to reflect on different questions of European Integration and to analyze them as they relate to other disciplines, such as Comparative Studies, International Relations, Policy Analysis, and Political Theory. Introductory courses (lectures and undergraduate classes) provide a general review of the historical development of integration, the political system of the EU, central policy fields, and various approaches to integration theory.
Graduate classes give students the possibility of concentration and specialization in various fields and questions of Integration Studies. This can be either the analysis of individual policy fields (e.g. welfare policy, environmental policy, external relations), the examination of specific challenges to European Integration (enlargement, consolidation, constitutionalization, democratization), or the analysis of vertical and horizontal (transnational) processes of governance in the EU.
Programs of Study
The Center offers classes and modules on European Integration as well as on regional policy analysis as it relates to Europe in the following programs of study:
- BA Political Science at the Otto Suhr Institute, Department of Political and Social Sciences of the Freie Universität Berlin
- MA Political Science at the Otto Suhr Institute, Department of Political and Social Sciences of the Freie Universität Berlin
- BA und MA Social Studies (teaching degree) at the Otto Suhr Institute, Department of Political and Social Sciences of the Freie Universität Berlin
- MA International Relations of the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and the Universität Potsdam
Apart from offering classes on the undergraduate and graduate level, the support of PhD candidates is of great importance to the Center. In this context, the Center is involved in the Berlin Graduate School of Transnational Studies, which is integrated into the Dahlem Research School of Freie Universität Berlin.
