The three-year Bachelor’s program is offered at the Campus of the Europa-Universität Flensburg.

This Bachelor’s program is an interdisciplinary study program focusing on the cultural and social sciences of Europe. Empirical research methods, as well as hermeneutic methods and critical thinking, enable students to work in interdisciplinary settings.

One of the particular features throughout this program is its project-based application of academic knowledge in the fields of research, journalism, art, and scenography, or entrepreneurship. This prepares students for dealing with the practical challenges of their future careers.

As an international BA, with all classes taught in English, the program requires the completion of one semester abroad.

Course Details:

EUCS follows a modular structure, which makes it more adaptable to students’ needs and preferences than other Bachelor’s programs. Therefore, the structure presented below is flexible.

Introduction phase (first and second semester):

The area “Topics and Disciplines” covers an introduction to how Europe is conceived and discussed in cultural studies and social sciences.
The area “Doing Europe” focuses on research methods and provides a first introduction to the project fields of research, journalism, entrepreneurship, and art and scenography, in which students might later apply for practical training and job opportunities.

Development and deepening phase:

In the third semester, students choose one of two focus topics: either European cultures or European society. From then onward, the focus is mainly on one of the topics, while still maintaining some contact with the other.
Within the chosen focus students deepen their academic knowledge in the area “Topics and Disciplines”, as well as their practical abilities in the area “Doing Europe” by expanding their skills in research methods and implementing their knowledge in one of the project fields.

In the fourth and fifth semesters, students deepen their knowledge, namely through the interdisciplinary approach to current problems and debates related to European cultures or society.

These semesters are organized so as to make it easier for students to take part in the language courses offered by the Language Centre of the Europa-Universität Flensburg, which is offered free of charge, and to complete their semester abroad.

The sixth semester is mainly dedicated to writing the Bachelor’s thesis, with the support of a colloquium and other science courses.
