The “Europa Master”, a consecutive 4-semester M. A. program that will be certified in all three participating countries. It is the first genuinely trinational study program at JGU Mainz, and the only trinational M. A. in European Studies currently offered in Germany: Participants study the first semester in Opole (Poland), the second semester in Mainz (Germany), and the third semester in Dijon (France).

Upon the successful completion of the M. A. program, graduates receive the respective national degrees from all three partner universities.
