The European Union Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign administers an interdisciplinary program of language and area courses leading to a Master of Arts degree. The program is intended to serve three constituencies of students: those seeking to combine area expertise with professional training; those proceeding to disciplinary-based doctoral work; and those seeking a stand-alone, professional degree.
Applicants for admission to the Master of Arts program should have completed at least two years of a language of the European Union and hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution of higher education. The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is required. Admission requirements of the Graduate College also apply. The minimum paper-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score is 550 (213 on the computer-based test or 79 on the iBT). Candidates must write a statement of purpose showing how the M.A. degree in European Union Studies fits into their educational and career plans. This statement must show that the interdisciplinary nature of the MAEUS will serve the student better than a disciplinary degree.
Admission is ordinarily limited to the fall semester, but exceptions are made for spring and summer admission.
Deadline for Fall Admission: January 15 (January 1 for international students)
