Is European Studies worthwhile and which universities offer it with two languages?Watch
Bath's Modern Languages and European Studies degree involves studying two languages as well as a range of European-related modules (click here to see them). This degree seems to be quite focused on EU and international politics.
UCL's European Social and Political Studies degree allows you to study one or two European languages alongside various European-related modules. However you also specialise in another subject (either Anthropology, Politics, Law, Economics, Geography, Philosophy, Social Sciences, Planning and Urban Studies, International Relations or Statistics) - this degree would suit someone who wants to study Europe and learn languages, but also wants a solid grounding in another academic discipline. The department also does a dual-degree where you spend the first two years studying at a university in France and the final two years in London. Click here for all the details.
Birmingham's Modern Languages degree has a European Studies pathway. Click here to see the modules available, the European Studies part of this degree seems to focus on film, literature, culture and media.
Nottingham's Modern European Studies degree allows you to combine two languages with either modern history or European politics. Click here to see the degree structure and get an idea of what modules you can take.
Southampton's Languages and Contemporary European Studies degree also allows you to study two languages, the European Studies side of the degree seems to be focused on the study of society rather than culture, so there's a lot of politics, linguistics and sociology.
I suspect the average employer wouldn't see much of a difference between European Studies graduates and Modern Languages graduates. That said, there are professions (e.g. banking, the civil service and NGOs) where knowledge of the structure and workings of EU institutions and EU law would be valued highly.
