Overview & Profile
The European Cultures and Society (EUCS) bachelor’s degree program at Europa-Universität Flensburg is an English-taught, interdisciplinary degree program focusing on European scholarship and research in the humanities, cultural studies and social sciences.
As a student in the EUCS program, you will acquire subject-specific and methodological skills in disciplines within the humanities, cultural studies and social sciences relevant to European Studies. You will also develop advanced specialized knowledge of certain areas of European Studies, either from a cultural or social science perspective—the choice is yours.
A special feature of the program is its project-based application of academic knowledge in the fields of research, journalism, art and scenography, or entrepreneurship, which prepares students for the practical challenges of their future careers.
Taught entirely in English, EUCS is a highly international program and includes a mandatory semester abroad in one of our many international partner universities. This study abroad allows you to deepen your foreign language and intercultural communication skills, among other things.
In Academic Skills (1st semester) we receive a first look at how interdisciplinarity can be used and its importance by taking one topic and having professors from different faculties come and discuss this topic from the perspective of their discipline. Some examples were from the perspective of natural sciences, an artist's view, even a politician's understanding and standpoint on the topic. This way we could see how different issues can be analised from several points of view.
Through the class Social Practice (4th semester), we got the chance to apply the knowledge received through the several semesters by going on a class excursion to Brussels to analyze EU migration policies.
Meeting the author to the book "We the Drowned", Carsten Jensen, in Transnational Perspectives (4th semester) was also very interesting.
