European Master in Intercultural Communication (EMICC)
The yearly EUROCAMPUS forms part of EMICC (European Master in Intercultural Communication). EMICC is a teaching and research network of ten European universities specializing in intercultural communication proposing an interdisciplinary study programme designed to enhance academic and professional competence of participants preparing for careers with significant intercultural contact.
The core of EMICC is the yearly EUROCAMPUS INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION, a four month intensive programme taught by professors from the network universities and visiting lecturers, in which three to five students from each partner university can take part. The curriculum includes courses on various topics relating to intercultural communication and other intercultural issues, such as management, training, and linguistic perspectives.
Eurocampus students from the partner universities study together under the instruction of visiting teachers from the partner institutions. After the Eurocampus period, the students return to their home universities and continue their studies there. Students wishing to participate in the Eurocampus must be degree students at one of the partner universities.
