Erasmus Mundus - EUROCULTURE Scholarships

The Erasmus Mundus MA programme Euroculture is a unique, multilingual, interdisciplinary and inter-university project. Its aim is to prepare graduates from Europe and third-countries for professions in which knowledge of present Europe and European Union institutions are of relevance. The focus of the programme is on cultural and social developments: its inheritance as well as its standards, values and citizenship.

Because of the multidisciplinary studies approach, the Euroculture programme stands out from many other European Regional Studies programmes. From the beginning of the programme in 1999, Euroculture was used as a concept to reflect in an interdisciplinary way on the many different expressions and manifestations of self-understandings of societies, social groups and individuals of, about and within Europe. Its core questions are:
  • Whether, to what extent and in which forms does a common and unique European culture exist and how is it related to other regional or non-European cultures?
  • How is Europe and how are cultural transformations perceived within Europe and from the outside?
  • What is the mutual impact of political and social processes on European culture(s) and culture(s) in Europe?

These questions are discussed and analysed in an interdisciplinary setting which includes the knowledge of historical perspectives, political issues, social relations, legal issues and religious traditions.
Through the exchange with other European universities, the Euroculture Master of Arts programme also offers the chance to gain experience with other languages, perspectives and cultural practices. As of September/October 2006, the load of the programme is 90 ECTS-credits, which equals 16 months of full time study. The Euroculture programme brings together some 120 students who have to pass a selection procedure to be admitted. The programme is taught in the native language and/or in English and is open to students who have successfully completed a university BA programme in the fields of European Studies, History, Theology, Linguistics, Literature, Philosophy, International Relations, Law, Cultural studies, Anthropology, Psychology or Sociology. The Erasmus Mundus MA programme Euroculture for advanced students is offered by a consortium of six well-established European universities.
