Course content

The Erasmus Mundus Master Programme “Euroculture: Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context” is an interdisciplinary, international master offered by a consortium of eight European universities and four non-European universities. It is recognised by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Master of Excellence.
