Frequently Asked Questions
What is the workload like in the EUPS program?
The European Union Policy Studies program is an accelerated, one-year M.A. program. As such, the workload is significant. In addition to classes, students often attend additional guest lectures, study trips, and group meetings. Coursework is equally intensive across all three semesters.
Will I have access to academic resources for research and study?
Students are provided with full access to the European University Institute’s library and may use books from the EUI library on-site. The EUI also has extensive electronic material available; students may download and use this material when not physically at the EUI. Students also have access to the full collection at the local municiple library.
Finally, while in Florence, students have full access to the JMU library and its Interlibrary Loan services. Students freely access all periodicals to which JMU subscribes, and JMU librarians can deliver articles and chapters accessed via Interlibrary Loan to EUPS students.
