The Euroculture - Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context program is offered by the University of Groningen. Our two-year master's programme is ideal for students who understand that Europe’s future will be shaped not only by economics and politics, but also by struggles over identities, values, and heritage. 

About

The Euroculture - Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context program is offered by the University of Groningen. It is an interdisciplinary, international master offered by a consortium of eight European universities and four non-European universities. It is recognised by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Master of Excellence.

It combines courses from at least two leading European universities with an internship and practical training, Euroculture prepares you to make a difference in careers like diplomacy, international business, research, journalism, cultural management, and European administration.

Career prospects:

Euroculture graduates have built careers jobs in the fields of cultural management, government, research, journalism, policy-making, international business, NGOs, and European institutions. Others have found careers in academia, taking up PhD research in many fields in the humanities and social sciences.

Euroculture prepares its graduates – from all over the world – with a thorough grounding in the historical, religious, linguistic and cultural aspects that play an essential, but often neglected, role in the Europe of today. Our programme recognises that the power of culture, values and identities in modern societies calls for sensitive and well-informed professionals to work as diplomats, managers, administrators, policy makers, journalists and cultural professionals.

Programme Structure

Every Euroculture student studies at least at two European partner universities: after spending the first semester at the university to which they were originally admitted, students have to go to a different European partner university for the second semester. In the third semester Euroculture students choose either a professional track (work placement) or a research track at any of the 8 European European partner universities. European students can also apply for a research track at one of our non-European partner universities.
