The aim of the programme is to offer knowledge about the evolution of Europe and its culture, i.e. a comprehensive and integrated knowledge of the European field and its culture.

The undergraduate programme “Studies in European Civilization” is an originality of the HOU and contributes decisively to the modernization and renewal of the content of higher education in Greece.For the first time a Greek University is offering integrated undergraduate European Studies with emphasis on Culture in the broad scientific sense of the term. All other European programmes that have been operating so far are offered at postgraduate level but, for this reason, are considered to be too compartmentalized in their content and scope, or refer mainly to foreign language studies. This HOU programme, which is part of the activities of the School of Humanities, includes a broad combination of both established and new subjects and themes, with the aim of addressing the basic components and central processes that have shaped over time what has been called the European phenomenon. The main objectives of the programme are a) the enrichment of the knowledge and skills of the students of the programme, b) the development of their critical faculties, c) the ability to understand the current European reality which they themselves experience as citizens of Greece and Europe, d) the ability to understand the importance of transnational processes. Another objective is (e) to present the process of formation of the multi-prismatic image of the European phenomenon and culture that determines the current physiognomy of Europe.

The texts that have been specially prepared for the programme and which are accompanied by a wide bibliography, either in the form of parallel texts or as separate texts that are commercially available and can be consulted in the Foundation’s library, analyse important aspects of human activity and life throughout the geographical area of Europe – such as e.g. demography, climate, geography, social organisation, institutions, the use of natural resources, the economy, agglomerations, knowledge, everyday life in all its manifestations and expressions, but also on the products of human activity such as philosophy, science, art, politics, economics, the structure of societies, etc. It also traces, on the one hand, the important intersections and changes, but also the implicit continuities of the long duration of history, on the other hand. These fragments of the complex and fascinating European mosaic are interspersed in the main thematic modules that make up the programme, such as General European History, Economic and Social History, Philosophy, Sciences and Arts, Geography, Medieval and Western World, as well as in other modules dealing with specific topics and major debates. This structure is largely based on an open historical approach which makes the history modules (General History and Social/Economic History) central. Completion of the Programme allows those interested to specialise and deepen their knowledge in one of these areas, to move on to secondary studies having acquired basic knowledge and skills, to use the knowledge acquired in their work, and to broaden their critical faculties and intellectual culture. Greece is at the centre of Europe and in terms of European culture, competition for young people is increasing, communication is breaking down borders. An active citizen is an educated citizen, who needs to have a sense and knowledge of the wider environment, opportunities for equal communication, cooperation and equal opportunities.

EUC QUALITY POLICY – pdf
QUALITY TARGET 2023

Upon completion of the programme, students should be able to,

  • Understand the meaning and significance of “Europe”, the changes in its geographical boundaries and the borders of nation states, and the consequent cultural changes in the course of history.
  • Identify the stages of socio-economic and cultural development in Europe and its nation states.
  • Identify the main components of European civilisation, including both the temporal characteristics of civilisation and the spatial differentiation and alternation of cultural currents (culture).
  • Critically analyse each of these components in their historical, geographical and spatial contexts: the arts, sciences, literature, philosophy, education, political ideologies and changes in European identity, the institutions of European integration, systems of socio-economic formation and cultural communication.
  • Develop their critical thinking and skills in communicating knowledge and composing short essays on the developments of each component of European civilisation from the Middle Ages and the formation of the nation state to colonialism and globalisation.

Guidelines on Module selection

The first and second academic year modules are compulsory.

During the first year of study, it is recommended that students choose the module EPO10 and EPO31, which are openers. If they do not have time, they should choose EPO10. If they have time that allows them to choose more than two modules, then in addition to EPO10 and EPO31, they may also study EPO21.

In order to choose the second year’s modules EPO 11 and/or EPO 22, the student must have successfully completed both first year’s modules EPO10 and EPO31.

Of the third year modules, the student must attend EPO20 and select two more of the third year modules.

Of the fourth year modules, the student must attend EPO41 and choose two more from the fourth year modules.

In order to choose EPO41 in the fourth year, the student must have already successfully completed the 9 modules of the first three years.

In the process of declaring the units, the modules of the previous year must be exhausted first and then the declaration of the next year’s modules must begin.

You may select up to three modules each academic year. To obtain a degree, the successful completion of 12 modules is mandatory.

Graduates of High Schools or holders of corresponding or similar secondary education degrees earned either abroad or in Greece.
