About the programme

Euroculture is a two-year, multi-university master programme focused on the study of modern European society in the context of EU integration. We work in particular on the questions of cultural identities and social values that play such a vital role in today’s debates about Europe and its place in the world.

Euroculture stands out from traditional European Studies programmes in several ways:

Depth of perspective: Our interdisciplinary courses offer you a broad and deep training, exploring modern European society through history, political science, law, and religious studies. We train Europeanists with the skills to see below the surface of contemporary issues.

Theory and practice: Our practical training courses, called Eurocompetence modules, equip you with communicative and managerial skills. These courses will challenge you to use your theoretical and academic knowledge in a practical setting, developing the intercultural skills needed for work in trans-national networks.

European experience: All students spend at least one semester at another of the eight highly-ranked European universities in the Euroculture consortium. Some students return to Uppsala for their last semesters, others remain at their second-semester university: the choice is yours!

Flexibility: You can tailor the programme to prepare yourself for further study and an academic career or for other important fields of work in Europe-related areas. In the third semester, you choose whether to take an internship in a wide variety of fields or to follow research seminars—including perhaps at one of our partner universities in India, Japan, Mexico or the United States.

Erasmus Mundus: Euroculture has been recognized by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Programme of Excellence. Students can apply for a prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarship to support their participation in the programme.

Career Preparation: Euroculture graduates have gone on to careers in cultural management, government, research, journalism, policy-making, international business, NGOs, and the European institutions; as well as to PhD-level study in many fields in the humanities and social sciences. Courses are conducted in English, with students from across Europe and around the world.
