We are a truly unique interdisciplinary Department and learning community, engaging with multiple dimensions of the study of Cultural Science and Literary Knowledge from a Humanities Multidisciplinary Perspective which connects Europe, as a global actor, with timely societal, technological, and scientific challenges all over the world. In our educational offer, we are committed to providing a curriculum that allows students to deepen their understanding of cultures and societies by means of both in-depth disciplinary and interdisciplinary training.
The opportunities are endless—but all graduates acquire advanced (inter)disciplinary skills to cope with complex societies and cultural traditions in an increasingly globalised world. Our alumni find paths to a variety of international careers in research, public administration, education, journalism, politics, international organizations, or international business. Our departmental community of students and professors from across the world provides a distinct international learning experience with strong experience in educational innovation. Integral to one of the most prestigious universities in Europe, the European Culture and Literature Department offers an ideal environment to study cultures and literatures from a multidisciplinary perspective within and beyond the European context.
We strongly believe that outstanding scholarship and outstanding teaching complement and mutually reinforce each other. Renowned in their area of expertise, our faculty members hold doctorates and degrees from leading universities and programs in Europe and the globe, bringing both cutting edge research and innovative teaching to the classroom. The Department also hosts a large variety of academic and out-reach events, from invited talks by famous scholars and professionals to international conferences and field trips. Emerging as a major hub of scholarly work and teaching, the Department of European Culture and Literature is becoming one of the most distinguished departments among its peers.
