Euroculture IUPUI

Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context

Indiana University-Purdue University , Indianapolis, USA


Euroculture students may complete their third-semester Research track at IUPUI, one of the premier urban research universities in the US Midwest.  With its diverse body of 30,000 students, IUPUI is located near downtown Indianapolis. The city of 2 million is Indiana’s state capital and a regional center of health sciences and manufacturing.  The university is a joint partnership between Indiana’s leading public universities, hosting Purdue’s engineering school and IU schools of medicine, law, art, education ,and others.  The Midwest region is home to outstanding research libraries and Indianapolis is less than 3 hours from cities like Chicago, St. Louis, and Cincinnati.


Thematic Focus

All Euroculture students enroll in three social science and humanities courses within the IU School of Liberal Arts, which finances their tuition as part of the exchange. The SLA hosts  departments like Anthropology, History, International Studies, Political Science, and Religious Studies. Recent Euroculture students studied such fields as US foreign policy, global migrations, gender and politics, ethnic identity, and urban anthropology. Students enroll in a fourth, independent study course supervised by the program coordinator in which they prepare their thesis portfolios and conduct a collective research project focused on urban studies. Recent projects investigated refugee settlement programs and post-industrial urban renewal policies in the US Midwest. The IUPUI experience allows students to connect their Euroculture interests to the comparative context of politics, culture, and society in the USA.
