Within the Euroculture network eight renowned European universities and four excellent non-European univerisities are affiliated and work together to analyse the cultural dimensions of the European process of integration. Euroculture enables students to undertake an elaborate study of the historical, political and cultural structure of the European continent.

The Master’s Programme also meets the changing demands of the European job market. It provides the opportunity for students to prepare for fields of employment that are evolving due to the intensifying economic and political process of integration. People with a desire to work in a European or international field after their studies are able to acquire the ideal qualification for these field of employment through the Erasmus Mundus Master's Programme Euroculture. The Programme qualifies students for fields of work, within which political, cultural and historical knowledge is particularly necessary.
