Specialised curriculum on Governance and Regulation in the EU

The Master of European Studies - Governance and Regulation is a one-year postgraduate program, offered by the University of Bonn at the Center for European Integration Studies (ZEI). Taught by ZEI professors and a flying faculty of renowned experts from all over the EU, you will be a part of an international group of students with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

The development of the EU has increased the need for comprehensive expertise in European affairs as well as in the sources and effects of integration at all levels of government and in the private sector. Political decisions and legislative acts in the EU continuously generate new regulatory frameworks. The interplay of governance and regulation constitutes today's reality in the EU.

ZEI's master program is a research-based response to this development. It enables European and non-European graduates to become experts in the interplay between political, legal and economic aspects that constitute today's life in the EU and influence the EU's relations with other parts of the world. It prepares students for an international career in EU institutions, international organisations, national administrations, NGOs and global companies.

Course Content

The program offers an interdisciplinary curriculum with a focus on issues of Governance and Regulation in the EU. Political science modules focus on contemporary political issues and governance in Europe, especially, as they pertain to the wider spectrum of integration theories, and on the institutional and policy development of the European Union since the ratification of the Treaties of Rome.

Economic modules cover the economic, monetary and financial aspects of the EU, and analyse the Union's internal market against the backdrop of economic globalisation and the international trade regime. Legal modules deal with the constitutional principles of the European Union, the sources and application of EU law, the regulation of industry sectors such as electronic communications, energy and logistics as well as the legal structure of the internal market and the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the EU and other EU institutions.

The focus on governance in the EU deals with the interaction between political, economic, and legal factors and the dialectical structure of actors and factors in creating the institutional arrangements and policy fields in today's EU. Regulatory issues cover regulation policy and corresponding legal prerequisites in various fields, such as electronic communications, logistics, water, and energy.

Immunobiology: from molecules to integrative systems
Current developments in immunology show that molecular mechanisms regulating the immune system are still poorly understood. Additionally, it is becoming clear that a system-biological approach including bioinformatical analysis of transcriptomes and epigenetic alterations in single immune cells is indispensable to understanding immunological processes. Therefore, there is a substantial need for natural scientists with a thorough education in systems biology.
