This interdisciplinary and international Masters is an increasingly sought-after study program regularly offered by the Ruhr University Bochum since the winter semester of 1999/2000.

During the Master Studies program period of four semesters, you will have the opportunity to study cultural and economic contexts at the renowned Ruhr University. With regard to its content the studies program focuses on an international and above all European context. Our central idea is to discuss the convergence and divergence of the European social, cultural and economic area within a comparative perspective. The mulitdisciplinary aim of the program is to analyse all relevant aspects concerning Europe and the European Union and to detect and understand the connections between them. These include, for example, economic interdependences, political dynamics as well as social developments.

This qualification as a "specialist generalist" offers you the chance to choose between various career paths, e.g. working with international companies, institutions and organisations, including research.
