All classes are taught in English. Both master and doctoral European Studies are international programs, which aim at excellence in the area of globalization.

WHY this program
at Chula


Southeast Asia’s first European Studies Program

The MAEUS program, which began in 1997, was the first European Studies program in Southeast Asia to focus on the European integration process from different perspectives, combining the insights of different disciplines. With our long history in this field, our students will benefit from an extensive wealth of knowledge and experience of our faculty.


Interdisciplinary Program Gives Deep Perspectives

By combining insights from four core disciplines (history, international relations, economics,  and law), MAEUS allows students to develop analytical skills focusing on the complexity of the European Union, acquiring both broad knowledge and a deeper understanding of students’ chosen field.


Outstanding Field Study Program

To ensure that students have real-world, practical experience, MAEUS organizes an annual three-weeks field trip to Europe. Students will have great opportunities to visit EU institutions, historic sites, museums, and other culturally significant points of interest.


Renowned International Teaching Team

Apart from the team of Chula’s professors across disciplines who are themselves graduates from prominent universities in their fields, MAEUS students are taught by internationally renowned visiting scholars, experts, and practitioners from distinguished universities and institutions from around the world.

Career Opportunities

MAEUS graduates often pursue their careers in the government sector, the private sector, international organizations, NGOs, embassies, and educational institutes.
