Overall aim of the Master’s

The Master of Euroculture: Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context:  (Erasmus Mundus) is a unique interdisciplinary and inter-university programme. It aims to prepare graduates from Europe and third-countries for professions and research areas in which knowledge of present Europe and European Union institutions is of relevance.

The focus of the programme is on cultural and social developments, providing a good comprehension of the political processes of European integration, values, citizenship and cultural identity. The programme also addresses the challenges of the new Europe.

The European Commission has selected the Euroculture Programme for the Erasmus Mundus Master Courses. The Erasmus Mundus programme aims to enhance quality in European higher education and to promote intercultural understanding through co-operation with third countries. The Euroculture Programme is able to confer Erasmus Mundus scholarships for highly qualified third-country graduate students.

The programme consists of four semesters (120 ECTS) and is offered by a network of eight well-established European Universities. Students spend the second semester in one of the network universities and receive a joint/double diploma from the universities in which they have studied.

In 1999 the MA Programme Euroculture was launched by the universities of Deusto-Bilbao (Spain), Göttingen (Germany), Strasbourg (France), Udine (Italy), Uppsala (Sweden) and Groningen (The Netherlands) as a pilot-project. Since 2000 the participating universities have offered the programme officially. During the period 2000-2004 the network has been strengthened with new partners: the Universities of Krakow (Poland) and Olomouc (Czech Republic).

All institutions within consortium have a long tradition regarding teaching and research concerning European topics. The Euroculture programme developed from the existing expertise.

In the Euroculture network the following universities are joined:

The partner universities work together to guarantee a common curriculum and a truly international character in the programme. Students are thus able to gain insight that goes beyond the perspective of their home universities. Students will receive a joint/double degree from the partner universities where they have attended the programme.

All Euroculture universities offer a common first semester of the programme, so that all students have a comparable background. Students are stimulated to spend the second semester of the programme at one of the partner universities. All students attend a joint Intensive Programme at the end of the second semester.

Thus, with students from various European and non-European countries and the opportunity to spend the programme at two different European universities, and the possibility of a stay in a partner university outside Europe (Pune, India; Osaka, Japan; UNAM, Mexico; Indiana, USA), the MA Programme Euroculture offers its students a truly international experience.
