As an Associate Partner of the new Master in Central & East European, Russian and Eurasian Studies Program, the ECMI is expanding its networks and cooperation with educational institutions across Europe.
The International Master in Central & East European, Russian and Eurasian Studies is a new Program of the Erasmus Mundus International network that gives students the opportunity to obtain three Master Degrees from three different Institutions, in a two-year program. Several Universities are part of this Master, including the University of Glasgow (UK), the University of Tartu (Estonia), Corvinus University Budapest (Hungary), Illia State University (Georgia), Jagiellonian University (Poland), KIMEP University (Kazakhstan), National University ‘Kyvi-Mohya Academy’ (Ukraine), and Lobachevsky State University of Nizhni Novgorod (Russia).
The multiple-degree program focuses on Russian and Post-Socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia history and contemporary issues. With modules on conflict management and resolutions, sociological approaches on matters of politics, economics and development in the post-Cold War era, as well as country-specific topics and language studies, among others, the Master dwells upon a region that has recently been getting more attention, while offering important practical skills for the students’ professional careers.
With generous funding from the European Commission, the Program will count over 20 scholarships for its first class (2018-2020), and more in the following years.
The ECMI is looking forward to working with the Universities’ teams in the making of this Program and to contributing to the education of students interested in the topic of minority rights within the geographical scope of the study programme.
The ECMI cooperates with a number of universities and MA programmes across Europe. The ECMI teaches modules and supervises dissertations in the Bachelor of Science in European Studies at the University of Southern Denmark, and in the Master of Arts in European Studies at the Europa-Universtitat Flensburg. Among our other cooperation partners are the Master Programme in “Studies in European Societies” at the Center for German and European Studies at the St. Petersburg State University, the Master in Intercultural Communication and European Studies of the University of Applied Sciences in Fulda, the Master in Political Science of the University of Zagreb, the Master in International Politics and International Law at the Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel, and the University of Swansea.
