  The aim of the online European Studies Winter School is to help students understand the political, economic, cultural and social accomplishments and challenges of the European Union, as well as to learn about the contributing factors that led to contemporary Europe. The interdisciplinary program provides a comprehensive introduction to the political, economic and social processes as well as the characteristics of the rich cultural heritage and cultural diversity in the European Union.

  In addition to the history of European integration and the specifics of the work of the EU institutions, the winter school explores the European Union's role in world politics, the political processes as well as the current economic and social situation in the European Union. Students will also learn about the political, economic, social and cultural impacts of migration on Europe as well as the defining ideas related to sustainable development and the results achieved so far in the EU, related to the topic. Gender history and current gender issues in Europe will be also revealed in the framework of the winter school.

  As intercultural communication plays an important role in the culturally diverse European Union these days, students will also gain insight into the most important issues of European intercultural communication in an interactive class.
