Welcome to Euroculture in Göttingen

What does Europe mean to you? What comes to your mind when you think about it? Do you see Europe as a continent? Or as the European Union? Do European citizenship, European Championships or the Eurovision Song Contest come to your mind? The Euro, the European Parliament and the Single Market? Europe means different things to different people, mainly because it reflects a broad range of self-understandings across societies, social groups, and individuals in, from, within and beyond Europe. In Euroculture, we work on mapping, understanding and linking these different perceptions on Europe.

Europe is a project, and so is Euroculture. The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master "Euroculture - Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context" is a European Studies programme partly funded by the European Commission. It is a transdisciplinary, international and inter-university programme involving various disciplines, eight renowned European and four non-EU universities. Its aim is to prepare graduates from all over the world for careers and research fields in which knowledge of present-day Europe and the institutions of the European Union are of relevance.

The Programme was established in 1998 to focus on regional, national and supranational dimensions of Europe’s democratic development in an interdisciplinary manner. Euroculture pays attention to institutions, just as topics like migration, transcultural exchanges, security and the increasing mobility of Europe's population. Ever since the establishment of the Programme, “Euroculture” has been used as a concept to reflect interdisciplinarily on the many different expressions and manifestations of self-understandings of societies, polities, social groups and individuals in, across, within and beyond Europe.

What sets the Euroculture Programme apart from many other European regional studies is not only its multidisciplinary curriculum, but also the flexibility and the mandatory mobility it offers to its students in order to provide them with various perspectives on Europe. Our students study at two or three of our universities. They have a chance to experience different countries, cultures and academic systems. They get the opportunity to meet people from all over the world and establish a network of colleagues and friends.
