Internships and Summer Schools

Information on Internships

If you fulfill the following requirements, your internship can be accepted as an elective course:

  • the internship has to be related to the study programme
  • it was carried out after the beginning of your master studies in EUS
  • it was a full-time internship of at least four weeks
  • your participation can be confirmed by a reference letter or certificate
  • after completing your internship you have to write a report of 7-10 pages which will be graded by the head of studies.

Your internship is worth 5 ECTS. Since it is graded on the basis of passed/failed the grade cannot be considered for your final average grade on your diploma (which indicates your overall performance in the master). Acknowledgement of your internship is voluntary, you have to decide yourself whether you prefer to take an elective course which is graded within the regular grading system and will affect your final average grade or not.

Information on Summer Schools

If you fulfill the following requirements, your participation in a summer school can be accepted as an elective course:

  • the content of the summer school demonstrably fits to the study programme in European Studies at Europa-Universität Flensburg
  • the courses taken are evidently on a master level

Independent of how many credits the course is worth in total according to the university hosting the summer school, a maximum of 5 CP will be accredited for it. The summer school counts as part of the 15 CP in the third semester reserved for electives. No grade for these 5 CP will appear in the transcript.

Youmust be registered as a student at Europa-Universität Flensburg until the day of your last examination, which is the oral defence of the Master's thesis. This means that you have to re-register as a student also when writing your Master's thesis.

Timeline

The minimum time for processing a thesis (from registration to handing-in) may not undercut ½ of the total allotted time. This is regardless of which PO (rules and regulations) is valid for you.
Should you want to submit your thesis before the official date given in your confirmation from the examination office, please be advised that this is not possible before a minimum of  3 months from date of registration have passed.

Anti-Plagiarism Declaration

Very important: Following the "European studies" examination regulation (§18 PO "European Studies" no. 8), you must add a declaration to your Master's thesis which states that you wrote the thesis yourself and only used the sources listed in it. You can use the example that we provide on this web site on the Forms page ("Anti-Plagiarism Declaration"). Do not forget to fill it in and sign it!

Application Master's Thesis

There are two approaches towards the Master's thesis, depending on whether you will receive the degree (a) from Europa-Universität Flensburg or the dual degree (b) in cooperation with the Syddansk Universitet (SDU).

a) For a Master's thesis at the EUF, you need two supervisors. They may be professors or research assistants or other lecturers. The only requirement is that one of the supervisors - either the first or the second one - has to be a professor. Both supervisors need to agree on the supervision and the title and sign the application form (available on this page).

b) See details for  SDU Requirements below

Before you start writing your master's thesis in either case, you have to apply for it by filling in the application form and handing it in at the examination office. After finishing your application you have six months to write your thesis. For the application you need to prove that you achieved an amount of 90 CP during your studies. If you intend to start writing your master's thesis before having achieved the necessary 90 CP, you have to send a request to the examination board an receive their approval.

Requirements SDU

Please keep in mind that, although the SDU only demands one digital copy, you have to submit three CDs to also comply with German regulations.

You need only one supervisor (either from EUF or SDU). The second supervisor has to be an external supervisor and will be assigned by SDU. 
 
For more information, please refer to: Requirements of the SDU for the master thesis

In some cases you may find the syllabus of the previous winter term, which will give you an idea of the contents of the course.

ECMI: The European Minority Rights and Minority Protection Regime

Ch. Gaitanides: EU Competition Law

Prof. Dr. Charlotte Gaitanides

 Elective "EU Competition law"

 The course analyses the competition law and policy of the European Union which aims at preventing the distortion of an efficient competition in the Internal Market. The course analyses the rules concerning undertakings in Art. 101, 102, 106 TFEU, the EC Merger Regulation and the rules on state aid in Art. 107 - 108 TFEU as well as the respective case law. A distinction will be drawn between the rules addressed to private firms and those addressed to Member States. As the EU Commission plays a central part in the enforcement of competition policy, the interplay between the European and national competition procedures including the leniency programmes will also be examined.

Ch. Gaitanides: European Union and the Law of the Sea

Prof. Dr. Charlotte Gaitanides

Elective "European Union and the Law of the Sea"

The seminar examines the interaction between the International Law of the Sea and EU Law. Both the EU and its Member States are parties to the 1982 United Nation Convention of the Law of the Sea. The course will focus on the international role of the EU regarding the rights and duties implied in the use of world’s oceans. It will give an introduction to the international law of the sea and will cover issues like maritime boundaries, piracy and maritime security, the protection of the marine environment, the use of the Arctic and dispute settlement. Relevant decisions of the Court of Justice of the EU and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea will also be examined.

The seminar includes a one-day-excursion to Hamburg (International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, International Maritime Museum and UNESCO’s World Heritage "Speicherstadt und Kontorhaus District").

M. Köppen: EU-Anti-Discrimination Policy

This course gives an overview of the European strategies in the field of anti-discrimination policy. Besides covering the European guidelines in this policy area, it gives insight to the intentions of the existing legal regulations and their practical application within the Member States. Different case studies shall facilitate the understanding of European anti-discrimination strategies. Students will be required to write term papers in which they report on the anti-discrimination policies in a country of their choice. The paper will constitute 80 percent of the final grade. For the other 20 percent, students need to present their work to the class, which will be followed by a discussion. At the end of the course, the students should have a general understanding of the legal challenges as well as the practical implications within the different Member States. Not only should students be able to identify the problems at hand, but also be capable of determining how future anti-discrimination strategies could look like in order to tackle these challenges. The course is structured in a lively and practical way and prior knowledge in legal matters is not necessary.

T. Müllenborn: Industrial Relations and Law: Corporate Governance and Employment Relations: A Comparative Perspective

St. Panther: Institutions and Global Markets

B. Sommer: Political Ecology in Europe

Course title: Political Ecology in Europe

Course teacher: Dr Bernd Sommer

ECTS-Credits: 5

____________________________________________________________________________

The course seeks to provide an understanding of the complex interactions between politics, economics, technology, and the natural environment. At first, the seminar deals with some of today’s most pressing ecological crises, such as global warming, biodiversity loss, and the oceanic crisis. After focusing on underlying societal and economical causes as well as consequences of these multiple crises, the second part of the seminar identifies and critically discusses potential solutions. A special emphasis lies on various strategies of the European Union to respond to current environmental issues. This includes market-based instruments (for instance, EUTS/Emissions Trading), the introduction of renewable energies, as well as the idea of "Green Growth". Additionally, more radical approaches that are marginalized in Europe’s institutional political ecology will be discussed. Here, the debate about GDP as an (in)appropriate tool to measure social welfare, so-called de-growth approaches, suggestions to govern natural resources as commons as well as bottom-up initiatives, such as the "Transition Town Movement" will be examined.

K. H. Stumpf: European perspectives on sustainable economies

Against the backdrop of economic, social and ecological challenges, concepts of "Green Growth" and a "Green Economy" are gaining increasing attention in Europe. At the same time, proponents of "Degrowth" call for the abolishment of the growth paradigm. Initiatives like the "Integral Cooperative" (Cooperativa Integral) in Spain, "Transition Towns" in Great Britain or the "Economy for the Common Good" in the German-speaking countries form concrete alternatives trying to embed economic processes into social and ecological contexts. "Environmental Justice" activists criticize illegitimate appropriation of agricultural land ("Landgrabbing") also in Europe. The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), a consultative body to the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Council, argues for "a more ethical economy", and the EU directive on non-financial reporting obliges larger companies to report about environmental and social aspects from 2017. The proposed transatlantic trade agreement between the European Union and the United States (TTIP) is contested not at least because of potential negative impacts for environmental and consumer protection. In the seminar, different concepts and practices of (non-) sustainable economic activities in Europe will be discussed. After successful completion of the seminar, the students will be able to differentiate among and reflect upon these concepts and practices and discuss them in relation to the interests of different actors.

W. Wodarg: Council of Europe

Seminar Council of Europe

The seminar on the Council of Europe gives the opportunity to experience, how the core values of a bigger Europe are shaped and safeguarded by its democratic bodies.

We shall discuss principles, structures and procedures of this democratic motor for building a bigger and sustainable Europe based on the principles of human rights, democracy and the rule of law.

Students will get a training as parliamentarians and will be encouraged to develop ideas for a better Europe and learn how to fight for them in a parliamentary assembly.

Finally we shall visit the national parliament in Berlin and have some exchanges with its representatives on European politics.

Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg

(Former MP (Bundestag) and Hon. Member of PACE/COE)

S. Wulk: The EU: External Relations

In this course we will look at the EU’s external relations from an historical as well as contemporary perspective. We will look at the evolution of the EU’s foreign policy and then delve into its current outlook, dimensions and scope. Further, we will look at the academic debate surrounding the topic of the EU’s global actorness and discuss in how far the EU can be considered a global power.
