This is a four semester graduate degree for those who have a BA/BSc or equivalent who wish to know all that is worth knowing about European identity (history, philosophy, media, politics), languages, economy, and law. The degree "MA in European Culture and Economy" shows that you are a European specialist and well prepared for the European job market - particularly in those activities that require competence in cultural, economic, and legal matters.
ECUE is an interdisciplinary programme, i.e. it comprises subjects from Social Sciences, Political Sciences, Cultural Studies, Humanities and Economics. The Faculty of Social Sciences is responsible for this programme. Also involved are the Faculties of Economics, History, Philology, Philosophy and Educational Sciences. The course is clearly focused on issues relating to an international, especially European context.
The programme comprises 9 modules each concerning one topic. In these modules the students analyse, identify and reflect interdisciplinary, by adapting social, cultural and economic points of view, on the convergence and divergence of Europe. The ninth module consists of colloquia lasting several days and a compulsory excursion.
During the interdisciplinary colloquia the students investigate interdisciplinary interrelations, train their intercultural competences, enhance their knowledge of research methods and prepare subjects for their master thesis.
The modules are concerned with the following topics: Society and Culture in Europe, Economy in Language and Literature, European Economy and Law I and II, The History of Europe´s Economy and Culture, Areas of European Politics, Cultural Research Methods, Concepts of Europe and Special Topics, Philosophy, Culture and Education.
