The Master Programme in Euroculture at Uppsala University offers great opportunities for those of you interested in understanding and helping to shape the future of European integration. 

About

Our interdisciplinary approach combines coursework in at least two countries. We will prepare you to make a difference in fields like diplomacy, international business, journalism, cultural management, and the European institutions.

Euroculture is a two-year, multi-university Master’s programme from Uppsala University focused on the study of modern European society, politics and culture in a global context. We work in particular with 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.

How will Europe emerge from its contemporary crisis? What role can Europe play in the world? How will Europe’s past shape its future? Answers to these questions will be forged by you and others in a new generation of leaders with a new kind of interdisciplinary, Europeanist education and training. This is what Euroculture offers you.

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.

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 recognised by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Programme of Excellence. You can apply for a prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarship to support their participation in the programme.

Career

Euroculture graduates have gone on to careers in cultural management, government, research, journalism, policy-making, international business, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and the European institutions; as well as to Ph.D. level study in many fields in the humanities and social sciences.

There is growing need for professionals able to understand cultural exchanges and conflicts. This is highlighted by the prominent role played by cultural issues in debates on virtually every aspect of European political, social, and economic life, all in the context of the complex economic and cultural processes we call globalisation.

Euroculture will prepare you to answer the demand that exists today for sensitive and well-informed professionals to address these issues in fields such as:

  • diplomacy
  • administration
  • project management
  • journalism
  • cultural consultancy
  • research
