European cultures in theory and practice
The master’s degree programme teaches specialised knowledge on historical and contemporary everyday culture. A focus is placed on social practices and cultural lifestyles that constitute our living environment and analysing these with historical and/or empirical methods.
Your studies will be interdisciplinary and based around research and practice. In this way, you’ll learn the necessary tools that you can put into use in an individual and independent master’s thesis.
