Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona

The Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) was founded in 1990. This public university is located in Catalonia. The institution, in the center of Barcelona, has grown to include 7,000 students. Committed to civic values and research, UPF takes its name from an individual who worked to standardize the modern Catalan language. Pompeu Fabra (1868-1948) wrote many texts such as Normes ortogràfiques (Spelling Rules) and Gramàtica catalana (Catalan Grammar) as well as the 1932 Diccionari general de la llengua catalana (General Dictionary of the Catalan Language).

SciencesPo., Paris

Sciences Po was founded in 1872 and has long sought to train a merit-based elite for leadership. S-P now enrolls about 7500 students each year. Its campus, located in Paris' Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, is composed of 17th- and 18th-century mansions. In the words of its former director, the late Richard Descoings, Sciences Po seeks to cultivate "imagination, the capacity for invention and innovation, and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances" in its students.

University of Bath

The University of Bath's campus is located about a mile from the centre of Bath, a World Heritage City. Founded in 1966, Bath University is one of the UK's leading universities, with an international reputation for research and teaching of the highest academic caliber. Roughly 13,000 students enroll in Bath University each year. The Department of European Studies and Modern Languages serves as the home base of Euromasters (EM), TAM's sister program. The Department was awarded a grade 5 in the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), and is one of the leading centres for European Studies in the country.

Charles University, Prague

The oldest university in central Europe, Charles University was founded in 1348 by Charles IV, then Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia. Today, Charles University enrolls over 47,000 Czech students and over 4,500 international students who study in 17 different faculties. The Faculty of Social Sciences was created in 1990 through a fundamental reorganisation of the former Faculty of Journalism. It is the second youngest faculty of Charles University. Its main goal is to develop teaching and research in those aspects of the social sciences, which (directly or indirectly) relate to the public administration, or to the economic and cultural life of society.

Università degli Studi di Siena

The University of Siena, founded in 1240, is one of the oldest universities in Europe. It is situated in the heart of one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval towns in Italy and serves a population of roughly 20,000 students. The Euromasters / TAM courses, designed exclusively for a small number of incoming students, draw on staff from the Faculties of Law (which includes the Department of Political Science), Letters and Economics, and also host specialist Faculty drawn from other institutions. The university library is one of the best-stocked in Italy.

Universidad Complutense de Madrid

A highly-acclaimed public institution, UCM is one of the oldest universities in the world. The main campus is in Moncloa, and the Department of Politics and Sociology, within which the TAM students will study, is located on the Somosaguas campus. These locations are well-connected by bus.

University of Bremen

Close to 20,000 students study at Universität Bremen in North West Germany each year. As the website explains: "The University of Bremen was founded with a dedication to interdisciplinarity, focus on applicability of academic results and an awareness of its responsibility towards society. Not least due to the Bremen experience, practice-oriented project studies have been introduced into many other universities and an interdisciplinary thrust has become the general trend in higher education. These guiding principles have since been complemented by a strong commitment to internationalisation, to gender equality and environmental protection. The comprehensive network of international partnerships and co-operations is to be augmented by the introduction of internationally recognised degree programmes and research projects."

Freie Universität-Berlin

Berlin has long been one of the most exciting cultural centers in Europe. The two participating Universities reflect the history of the previously divided city: the Freie Universität Berlin (FUB) was founded in 1948 as a rival to the communist-dominated University in the eastern sector of the city. Its Otto Suhr Institut has been the home of critical politicalscience for over 40 years. Following the radical changes of 1989/90, Humboldt Universität (HUB), in the historical heart of the city, underwent an ambitious program of restructuring. The newly-founded Faculty Institute of Social Sciences, which is highly professional and has a strong empirical base brings together political science and sociology. FUB and HUB cooperate closely on the Euromasters and Transatlantic Masters programs.
