“Like European Studies, but cooler”
Euroculture is a two-year, 120 ECTS, English-taught multi-university Master programme focused on the study of modern European society, culture and politics in a global context.
We focus on questions of cultural identities and social values that play a vital role in today’s debates about Europe and its place in the world. It is ideal for students who understand that Europe’s future will be shaped not only by economics and politics, but also by struggles over identities, values, and heritage.
Euroculture is all about a critical and interdisciplinary approach to analyzing European culture, politics and society in a globalized context
How does Euroculture stand out among other European Studies programmes?
It offers a unique combination of in-depth knowledge and practical skills within its multidisciplinary curriculum. Flexibility to choose between research-oriented and professional tracks, and an opportunity to do an internship during your studies, are among the advantages of Euroculture.
An essential element of the programme is the mandatory mobility – Euroculture students study at minimum two European universities of the Consortium, and receive a joint Master degree upon graduation*.
Small-scale teaching by experts in varied, challenging fields and project-based work in intercultural teams is what prepares our graduates for successful careers.
Euroculture has been recognized by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Programme of Excellence. In 2017, it has been awarded Erasmus Mundus grant for the third time – allowing selected students to fund their studies with a scholarship.
Which universities do you attend?
When applying to the programme, you indicate 3 partner universities where you would like to start the Euroculture Master. We always try to accommodate students' preferences when accepting them to the programme. If study places are still available at your first choice university when you are admitted to the programme, you will be placed there. If not, you will be offered to start the programme at your second or third choice. Students then choose their second university during their first semester - they submit motivations for 2 partner universities of their choice and will be placed in either of the two universities.
Please note: for Erasmus Mundus scholarship students, the first and second universities are set by the selection committee, paying attention to candidate's preferences but not always being able to accommodate them to the full.
How do I apply for the programme?
* For Erasmus Mundus scholarship students, both first and second university are determined at admission stage. For self-funding students, first university is determined at admission stage (first preferred university if places are available). Self-funding students choose their second university during their first semester - they submit motivations for 2 partner universities of their choice and will be placed in either of the two universities.
