Top Master's Programs in Education in Europe 2019

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

In its broadest sense, education can be defined as any formative experience that has some sort of effect on an individual. This consequently can affect the way the individual, or student, thinks, feels, or acts. Pedagogy is an important term in education that refers to the methodology of teaching.  

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

In a world of Big Data and total digitization, the humanities cannot remain as they were 100, 50, or even 10 years ago. Linguistics, philology, history, and art criticism are now going through a “digital turn”. Thanks to the development of technologies, new objects of research are appearing in the form of vast text collections, historical databases, digital archives, and online museums.

These objects contain a wealth of information about the language, culture, and society. However, they cannot be adequately studied with the methods traditionally used in the humanities. This “digital turn” requires new research competencies.

Our programme trains specialists capable of employing the latest tools when working with digital data, and applying these tools in the humanities. With these skills, such specialists can preserve cultural heritage in digital form.... [-]
