Master's Degree Programme in Baltic Sea Region Studies

Learning outcomes

The BSRS students gain a broad understanding of the past, ongoing and future developments in a region that the European Union has promoted as a model for the rest of Europe to follow. They will be equipped with the ability to see things from a regional perspective and the capacity to operate in regional contexts, which will be centrally important skills in the emerging Europe of macro-regions. Concurrently with acquisition of knowledge-based expertise in historical, political, social and cultural processes of regionalization the students will become fluent in intercultural interaction.


The Baltic Sea Region Studies (BSRS) is a multidisciplinary international Master’s Programme that looks at the world from the perspective of the region formed by the nine coastal states of the Baltic Sea and the sea itself. The programme combines thematic studies from history, international relations, human geography and cultural studies with training in transferable skills that the students will need in their post-graduation working life.

The BSRS study plate offers an innovative combination of traditional academic discipline-based perspectives such as history and IR and emerging novel fields of study such as spatial planning, cross-border area studies, environmental studies and popular culture studies. By preparing and updating their personal portfolios the students will also learn to identify and further develop the professional skills that they accumulate during their studies, such as oral and written presentation, project management and group working skills.


Academic requirements: a three-year Bachelor, Master or equivalent diploma in a relevant subject in Social Sciences, Humanities or Human Geography
Language requirements: a very good knowledge of English
