Euroculture is awarded Erasmus Mundus funding

The Erasmus Mundus MA programme Euroculture is again awarded Erasmus+ funding. Four more cohorts of students can thus receive stipends.

In the evaluation of the application, the convincing cooperation of the participating universities is stressed as well as the interdisciplinarity of the programme. Moreover, Euroculture stood out through its innovative methods to support student mobility while at the same time ensuring a “joint” integrated programme. With this new funding period, Euroculture is one of the oldest joint European MA programmes. The University of Göttingen was among the founding members of the Euroculture consortium in 1998.

In the funding period 2012-2017, Göttingen was awarded the labels “Success Story” and “Good Practice Example” as an exemplary European Masters Programme.
The “Erasmus Mundus Master of Excellence” label has been granted to the Euroculture programme by the European Commission three consecutive times: in 2005, 2011 and 2017. This sign of recognition confirms Euroculture’s outstanding quality as a top joint-master programme.

In Euroculture, the Faculty of Social Sciences cooperates with seven European universities (University of Groningen (Netherlands), Universidad de Deusto, Bilbao (Spain), Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie (Pland), Univerzita Palackého v Olomouci (Czech Republic), Université de Strasbourg (France), Università degli studi di Udine (Italy), and Uppsala Universitet (Sweden)), as well as with four international partners (Indiana University-Purdue University (USA), Universidad Nacional Autónoma Mexico (Mexico), Osaka University (Japan) and Savitribai Phule Pune University (India). In Göttingen, the faculty of social sciences cooperates with the faculty of theology and the faculty of philology to offer this interdisciplinary programme.
