The course ‘European Union Politics’ has its focus on the origins, the functioning, and the current developments of the European Union (EU). It is designed to introduce students to the European integration process, the political system of the EU, the legal framework of the EU, the EU as foreign policy maker at regional and global level, the EU policies, and the EU as multi-level system including both the member states and global level. Moreover, current developments, such as the economic crisis, Brexit, the asylum crisis, etc. will be analysed and discussed.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
