The Master’s Programme Euroculture: Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context (Erasmus Mundus) is a full time, four semesters MA degree programme offered by a Consortium of 8 European universities and 4 non-European universities.
The programme addresses the most challenging, interrelated issues Europe is facing today, such as migration patterns, lasting effects of the 2008 financial crisis, the rapidly changing geo-political context, drawbacks of globalisation, xenophobia, populism and most recently the Brexit, containing a mix of all these elements. The programme builds on more than 15 years of experience of coping with topics and concepts such as multiculturalism, political governance, various levels of (cultural) identity politics (European, national and local) and evolving cultural-social-political processes on the basis of a truly innovative, multilingual, interdisciplinary approach, recognised and financially supported by the European Union.
The programme offers a genuine multicultural and international classroom setting at all partner universities as an integral part of its existence. Mandatory mobility between the different consortium universities is a crucial element of the Euroculture programme. Through its international exchange, the MA Programme Euroculture offers the chance to gain experience with different languages, perspectives, and social and cultural practices. All students study in at least two partner institutions.
The programme offers two tracks to its students. The research track is tailored for further developing research skills at any partner university, and is particularly recommended for students with the aim of pursuing a PhD. The professional track consists of a tailored placements in one of the many associated cultural or political institutions.
