    The AlterEurope program offers a specialization in the neighbouring states of the European Union, focusing in particular on their place in community policies but also more widely on their role in globalization and international politics. 

    • Training on areas of the European Union's neighbourhoods, both in the east and in the south, and their relations with the EU and other European international organisations, in a resolutely interdisciplinary framework. 
    • A course designed to complement and strenghten the initial profile from the students’ main discipline, which, far from being forgotten or diluted, is taken into account and promoted throughout the training, with respect to the different career objectives of the student.  

    Who is this program for?

    The AlterEurope program is designed for four different student profiles, each with a solid disciplinary training (equivalent to the French Baccalaureate + 3) in geography, economics-management, political science or law.
    At the end of the training, the students are experts on the European Union and its neighbors. They understand specific problems from a geographical, economic, and legal angle, and in a broader institutional and political sense. They speak at least one or the neighboring country languages.
