Europe on the Move

Whether it concerns the Brexit, the rise of European populism, or even the election of Macron, Europe is constantly on the move. It is precisely this constant dynamic process of the shaping of Europe that you will study in the MA of Euroculture by focusing on European society, politics, and culture from a global perspective.

Joint-degree Program

My name is Dominick van Rens and I am the current Master Ambassador for the Erasmus Mundus Master Euroculture. I initially chose Euroculture after my BA in American Studies, as I was interested in transatlantic relations and wanted to know more about Europe. However, the program has much more to offer through its multidisciplinary approach, mobility, and its career opportunities. When I say mobility, I will have to provide you with an explanation: Euroculture is a joint-degree program. This means that during your Master you will study in at least two different European universities. Not only will you receive a separate master degree from both universities, but in your third semester you will also have the opportunity to either pursue an internship, study at a new (or the same) European university, or even study outside of Europe at one of the four partner universities in countries such as India, Japan, Mexico, and the US.

New Perspectives

I studied my second semester in Strasbourg, France, and I am currently doing my research internship at the University of Groningen. One aspect of the program that I love is that you study with classmates from all different kinds of backgrounds and nationalities, European and non-European. This has given me new perspectives during discussions and opened my eyes on the issues that we face in Europe nowadays. Thus, to conclude, if you are interested in learning about other cultures, Europe, and want to experience what it is like to live in several European countries, Euroculture is definitely a good fit for you.
