The Baltic Sea Region forms a visible entity on the map of Europe. The region is often presented as a prime example of new regionalism, de-securitization, transnational cooperation, and new forms of governance. The region, which has a long history of cooperation and conflict, serves as a microcosm where east and west, and also north and south, come together. It thus provides a prism to look at the interplay between the local, regional and global scales. The Baltic Sea Region Studies programme takes advantage of the experience already gained within the Baltic Sea region and introduces a fresh regional perspective well aware of the current political dynamics in Europe.
The programme offers comprehensive studies on the whole region, its historical and current political, economic and cultural development, national and international co-operation in and among the countries of the region, as well as the region's perspectives in the context of European regionalisation and globalisation. The Master's programme includes a possibility of studies at a partner university and an internship.
