Euroculture Open Online Course: Available Now

02 Oct 2018

Join a free online course on European Culture and Politics developed by four Euroculture partner universities.

With Brexit looming, ongoing identity debates, right-wing populism on the rise, and a rift between the European Commission and some of the EU member states, it seems that Europe is continuously in trouble and on the verge of disintegration. But what is “Europe” exactly? And why does it seem to be in this constant state of crisis?

This Massive Online Open Course has been developed by the Euroculture Master of Arts programme to answer these and other questions related to European culture and politics. The course European Culture and Politics is designed for students with a personal or professional interest in Europe, politics and culture. In this online course, students will  (re)think the meaning of European identity and Europeanness, and examine the interplay between culture and politics in the construction and governing of contemporary Europe. Through several case studies, they will explore different crises in European integration and develop your own responses to them.

Unique collaboration

Tens of thousands of students from all over the world have joined this and previous editions of the course. What sets this course apart from most other similar online courses is that the subject of European identity and collaboration echoes through in the organization of the course. It’s a unique international collaboration between four European universities: University of Groningen (NL), Jagiellonian University of Krakow (Poland), Uppsala University (Sweden) and the Georg-August University of Göttingen (Germany).

Joining the course is for free. The only requirement is to create an account with Future Learn - and then you can discover the fascinating subject that is contemporary Europe! Sign up for the course here. The course is open from 1 October onward.
