Why study this programme in Groningen?

Euroculture in Groningen is proud of being a founding member of the Euroculture programme (1999), and of its achievements as Programme of Excellence. From 2010 onwards, we have been continuously ranked as one of the best European Studies Programmes in the Netherlands based on the Master Keuzegids. In 2024, Euroculture Groningen was once again noted as being the top-rated Master programme in European Studies in the Netherlands based on the National Student Survey (NSE) results.

The international staff of Euroculture hold doctoral degrees in diverse fields, including history, cultural studies, political science, European law, European studies, and international relations. In Groningen, the academic and research focus centers on cultural identity and its relationship to European integration in all its dimensions. Seminars emphasize concepts like “Europeanisation” and “Citizenship,” with significant attention also given to Trans-Atlantic relations and East Asia. Groningen is an excellent choice for residence, as this lively and pleasant university town boasts a large student population, comprising about one-fifth of its inhabitants. Students benefit from excellent facilities, not only for studying (ICT, library, Placement Office, International Office), but also for sports, entertainment, and leisure.

Curriculum

In the first semester, students gain multidisciplinary knowledge about the European integration process and attend a practical module (Eurocompetence I). For the second semester, students in Groningen attend a methodology course, Eurocompetence II, and a research seminar. In the third semester, students opt for either a Research or a Professional Track and submit a Thesis Portfolio. The last semester consists of writing a thesis and completing Eurocompetence III (Project or PhD application).

Programme options
Professional (track)

In semester 3, students can opt for a work placement.

The work placement is a follow-up of Eurocompetence I and II and links theoretical knowledge, skills and understanding with practical experience - transferring this knowledge to a non-academic audience.

Students who opt for this track, will conduct it at an organisation or an institution relevant to Euroculture. This placement can be completed at either international or national organisations and institutions.

The Euroculture placement coordinator and the Office for Student Affairs of the Faculty of Arts can assist you in finding a suitable placement provider, as well as with the administrative procedures.

Research

Research in Euroculture

Our Euroculture staff conducts various research projects in the interdisciplinary field of Euroculture, also within larger projects with the partner universities of the consortium.

Articles from Euroculture scholars presented at the IP 2012 in Deusto published.

Articles from Euroculture scholars and keynote speakers (among which Dr. Janny de Jong, UG) that were presented at the Intensive Programme 2012 at the University of Deusto (Spain) have been published. The best Intensive Programme papers are always published in an annual volume, which can be found through this link.

Book in Euroculture Studies published in May 2013

"Europe Space for transcultural Existence" is the first of a new series of publications “Studies in Euroculture” . The book is jointly edited by Janny de Jong and Margriet van der Waal (Groningen) and Martin Tamcke and Lars Klein (Göttingen). The publisher is Göttingen University Press.

The articles in this publication explore different dimensions of the field of Euroculture: it includes topics such as cosmopolitanism, cultural memory and traumatic past(s), colonial heritage, democratization and Europeanization as well as the concept of (European) identity in various disciplinary contexts such as law and the social sciences.

The book is available in print and as online publication.

European Studies and Europe: Twenty Years of Euroculture

This volume is divided into two parts, which are intrinsically linked. The first part contains reflections on the field of European studies and on concepts, analytical perspectives and methodologies that have emerged through interdisciplinary dialogues in Euroculture/European studies. The second part contains contributions that reflect upon the Euroculture programme itself, discussing both changes and continuities in the curriculum and didactic methods, outlining possible venues for further developing the educational and research programme that is firmly embedded in a network of partners that have been closely cooperating over a span of no less than two decades.

Students' Research

During the master's programme students acquire knowledge in the Euroculture field of research and conduct their own research. These research projects are integrated in the methodology course, the research seminars as well as the master's thesis. Students opting for the Research Track will be trained in writing a PhD application (Eurocompetence III).

The department encourages students to participate in many conferences and symposia in the area of Euroculture and European Studies. The Programme's own main event is the Intensive Programme, a 7-day summer school where all students present their own papers. Since the 2010 IP, the best students papers have been published annually.

These publications can be found under Euroculture consortium publications at the University of Groningen website.

Examples of Euroculture MA theses can be found in the Euroculture thesis repository.

Júlia-Janka Gáspárik

I applied to the MA Euroculture, because I felt my IR studies were excessively theoretical and I needed a more practical approach.

Tell us about yourself and your work. Where are you originally from?

That is a difficult question actually: I am from the Hungarian minority in Transylvania (Romania). I consider myself Hungarian but I have never lived in Hungary. I started my first Higher Education in Cluj-Napoca in English, at the Babes-Bolyai University, European Studies Faculty.

I was a Blue Book trainee in the European Commission, DG Education and Culture, Unit Higher Education while finishing my last semester of Euroculture in Groningen. During the last month of the internship, I started applying to different organizations. The European Association for International Education called me back and I attended an interview in Amsterdam for a full position as a knowledge development assistant. There was three weeks between my internship and the start of the job, but I was hired before I was done in Brussels. The connection with my job is that I studied at four different universities in four countries so I had a lot of experience with internationalisation already when they hired me in DG EAC as a trainee. Having five months of policy and programme experience in the EC led me to apply for the position at the EAIE, where I also work on higher education and internationalisation.

What was your career path being an international alumni?

As a European Studies student in Cluj Napoca I was lucky to be able/ encouraged by the faculty to complete shorter and longer exchanges during my Bachelor. After finishing my Erasmus semester in Prague in 2016, I was in love with studying and living abroad, so I was sure I would apply somewhere different for my master studies. I wanted to experience something other than Central Europe this time, so The Netherlands was an obvious option considering the tuition fees and cost of living.

I was interested in European Studies and IR programmes, but the criteria restrained me a bit: even though my overall English exam (IELTS, C1) results were high, my writing was under 7.5, thus I could not apply to the research tracks or some more specific programmes. In the end, I was admitted to IRIO and accepted the offer without hesitation.

Months later, writing my IRIO thesis, I noticed the Euroculture poster on the corridor of the Harmoniegebouw. I applied, because I felt my IR studies were excessively theoretical and I need a more practical approach to find a job later in life, as I knew I am not PhD material. I talked with some alumni and student ambassadors and they convinced me that this is the right master if I am looking for practical experience.

For me, Euroculture was an incredible multicultural experience that provided me with so many stimuli and challenges and that was key to step out of my comfort zone and broaden my horizons.

Being passionate about EU affairs and willing to work in an international environment, I found that graduating from Euroculture helped me to find jobs matching my interests.

There was a close link between my traineeship and the first “real” job after graduating!

Tell us about yourself and your work. Where are you originally from?

I am Iida Honen, 27 years old, originally from Finland. I got my joint master’s degree from the University of Groningen and The University of Strasbourg (in France) in November 2020. Right now I am living in Brussels where I have worked since September 2020. I am working at the European Parliament as an assistant to a Finnish Member of the European Parliament. I actually started my job as a trainee last September but the traineeship quickly turned into a job - mainly because there was a lack of time and knowledge for communication in my MEP’s office and I managed to fill that gap. So there was definitely a close link between my traineeship and the first “real” job after graduating!

What was your career path as an international alumna?

I have also done another traineeship earlier - during my studies - from September 2019 until February 2020. This traineeship took place at Finland’s Permanent Representation to UNESCO and I worked for the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Even though this traineeship did not really create an actual job for me, it was my first step in the field of international cooperation/politics and it contributed to getting my next internship at the European Parliament without a doubt.

I did my master’s degree in European Studies at the University of Groningen. I studied in the Erasmus Mundus Euroculture programme, which meant that I actually only spent one of my four semesters physically in Groningen: during the programme you study in two different European universities. My other university was the University of Strasbourg where I started the programme in autumn 2018. The semester that I spent in Groningen was spring 2019.

Before Euroculture, I really struggled to get roles in the UK Government, possibly because my CV wasn't that relevant to the public sector. I believe that Euroculture gave me the headspace, confidence and focus to plan and execute my career switch from the private sector into the public sector, as well as the EU-specific knowledge to excel in the EU-related roles I've had over the last 6 years.
