Euroculture - Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context program from University of Strasbourg is a unique, interdisciplinary and international Masters program taught in English, focusing on European integration issues from a citizen's point of view. 


Established in 1999, the Euroculture - Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context program from University of Strasbourg was granted the Erasmus Mundus Masters Course of Excellence status by the European Commission in 2005 and again in 2011 in recognition of its outstanding quality. The Erasmus Mundus programme aims to enhance quality in European education and to promote intercultural understanding through cooperation with third countries.

The MA in Euroculture is a four semester (2 year), 120 ECTS, full-time programme. Students study in at least two universities of the Consortium of 8 European and 4 non-European universities, and are awarded either a double or a joint diploma. As a Euroculture student, you become part of an international network of students, academics, and institutions in Europe and in the Wider World.

Combining theory and practice, the programme allows you to gain a rare international and intercultural experience. Taking a multi- and interdisciplinary approach, the programme covers historical perspectives, cultural issues, social relations, political and legal processes, and artistic traditions in Europe. It differs from other European Studies programmes in its citizen-focused approach. It offers students the opportunity to study and discuss issues related to the process of European integration, such as multiculturalism, current political governance, European identity and evolving cultural and legal-socio-political processes.

The core questions of the programme are:

  • Whether, to what extent, and in which forms does a common and unique European culture exist? How is this culture related to other regional or non-European cultures?
  • How are Europe and its transformations perceived by Europeans and by non-Europeans?
  • What is the impact of political and social processes on European culture(s) and culture(s) in Europe, as well as vice versa? How are these changes reflected in the domain of the arts, and how does the integration process affect Europe’s cultural heritage?
  • Programme Objectives

    The Euroculture programme aims to prepare graduates for the increasing number of professions and research areas in which knowledge and understanding of contemporary Europe – its peoples, its processes, its institutions – is necessary.

    The main objectives of the programme are:

  • To give students a broad understanding of the functioning of European integration and an in-depth knowledge of the aspects of European integration that constitute the specialisms of their chosen universities.
  • To teach students the research skills necessary to further their knowledge and carry out exercises of reflection and analysis.
  • To equip students with the communication and intercultural skills necessary for working in an international environment
  • To introduce students to professionals working in various fields of European integration so as to allow for a transfer of expertise and professional competences.
  • To encourage students to construct a network of contacts of their own that will serve as a valuable asset in their professional careers.
