Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees


Under the Erasmus+ programme, the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs) offer EU-funded scholarships for courses taking place in the academic year 2016-2017. These courses involve study across a range of academic institutions, some in Europe, some outside.

Among the cultural sector joint master degrees:

  • Choreomundus: International Master in Dance Knowledge, Practice and Heritage.  Choreomundus investigates dance and other movement systems (ritual practices, martial arts, games and physical theatre) as Intangible Cultural Heritage within the broader contexts of Ethnochoreology, the Anthropology of Dance, Dance Studies, and Heritage Studies.

  • Euroculture: Society, Politics and Culture in a Global Context  Selected by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Programme of Excellence, Euroculture is ideal for students who understand that Europe’s future will be shaped not only by economics and politics, but also by struggles over identities, values, and heritage.

  • DOC NOMADS: The DOC NOMADS Joint Master Degree in Documentary Filmmaking is a two-year, full time, international graduate program delivered by a consortium of three prominent European universities across three countries: Portugal, Hungary and Belgium. This is the first intercultural film school supported by the Erasmus Mundus program of the European Commission. About twenty-five students from all around the world follow a mobility track from Lisbon to Brussels, via Budapest. In doing so, students are immersed within different cultural environments, learning how to make use of their abilities outside their usual social contexts.

  • MEDIA ARTS CULTURES: The MediaAC master program answers the needs of the evolving fields related to the future and heritage of Media Arts Cultures. Our global digital world is filled with new media culture that encompasses the big questions of today such as the processes of globalisation, utopias of neuroscience, political repression, big data, and the growing world-wide surveillance.

Most consortia will require applications to be submitted between October and January, for course starting the following academic year.

Check the conditions and deadlines carefully!  Each has an individual application process and guidelines.

Students at Masters level can apply to a maximum of three different programmes. Both, students and potential scholars/guest lecturers should contact the relevant Consortium for more information on courses and application procedures.
