Europe in the World (EitW) combines theoretical classes about political and cultural topics with newsrooms in which you work as professional correspondents.Understanding Europe through reading, writing, travelling and living in two European countries is what EitW is all about. You will also have the opportunity of working in other European countries.
The Utrecht part concentrates on Europe and the European Union: its politics, culture and identity, social economic structure and relevant policies and legislation. The Utrecht part of the programme provides you with the theoretical framework, contextualized within the journalism profession.
In order to publish on and analyze the European Union it is important journalists are aware of its structure and what are powers determining policies in Brussels. The historical context is necessary to understand the current situation and helps journalists to see patterns in EU development. European Politics is one of the three core courses together with European Economics and European Law.
Each course is assessed with a mix of individual and group assignments.
