In the one-year Master’s Identity and Integration, you will study contemporary challenges in Europe and the EU from the perspectives of history, arts and culture, media and politics. You will approach the study of European identity and cultural diversity within the disciplines of historiography, and cultural and literary studies. You will gain the in-depth theoretical knowledge on European history and culture necessary to study tensions and conflicts in Europe, and to understand contemporary debates about European integration and identity. You will explore intersections of culture and politics by focusing mainly on four topics: nationalism and national identities, transnational manifestations of European culture, the changing idea of Europe and European identity, and the employment of culture in community-building policies and practices in the EU.

You will further develop your writing, presentation and research skills, and you will train your organisational skills in the preparation and execution of a study trip to a European Capital of Culture. As part of an international classroom, you will be trained in intercultural and interlingual skills.
