    Duration
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 programme at Uppsala University offers you.

About

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. Recognised by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Programme of Excellence, Euroculture is for students who realise that Europe’s future will be moulded not only by economics and politics, but also through struggles over identities, values, and heritage – in a word, culture.

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 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.

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 PhD 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
