Research & Methodology Seminars

An important element of the second semester are the master seminars, which focus on a selected number of cultural issues, which aim to lead towards a better understanding of the establishment and development of cultural identities, cultural transformation processes perceived from within and outside of Europe as well as the impact of political and social processes on European culture(s) and cultures in Europe and vice versa.In the second semester the student begins the preparation of his or her MA thesis. The thesis is completed in the third and fourth semesters. This offers the possibility of making use of expertise and sources at two different universities. The subject should be related to one or more of the units of the first or the second semester of the Euroculture programme. The MA-thesis can also be a developed version of the seminar paper that is prepared for the Intensive Programme.
