About

"Euroculture in Uppsala uses a very interactive way of learning, and as the programme is well-organized and well-balanced, students don't experience much stress. Studying Euroculture in Uppsala is not about cramming dates and facts into your head, but much more about what to do with that information. I learned how to express my opinion eloquently and to be confident in debates. And if you're coming to Uppsala in February: be prepared for the cold!"
- Florence Delange, second semester Uppsala student 2015-2017

Uppsala University is one of the oldest, largest and most prestigious universities in Scandinavia. The Euroculture Master Programme is offered by the Faculty of Theology in cooperation with teachers from other faculties and departments.

Thematic Focus

The Euroculture programme at the University of Uppsala is closely connected to the Department of History of Ideas and Sciences, the Faculty of Law, the Department of Government, the Department of Peace and Conflict Research, the Department of Modern Languages, and the Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies.

The teachers and scholars associated with Euroculture at Uppsala focus on modern European political and cultural history, the history of ideas, gender politics, minority issues, migration, security regimes, environmental issues, communication patterns and life-styles.

Euroculture-Uppsala’s regional focus during the second semester lies on the Baltic Sea Region: this includes topics related to the environment, history, culture, economy, security and politics of the region.

Traditionally there is less class time in Sweden than in other countries, but more personal reading and individual / group tasks. Active participation in class is encouraged, and greater responsibility is placed on students to manage their own work. Do not be fooled by the schedule – you will have plenty to do! But the aim is also to give you a balanced workload and the time to think about what you are reading.
