All courses meet the special requirements of the individual disciplines included in the degree program, but have also been designed to meet the requirements for an interdisciplinary degree program. This means:

  • Eastern Europe is not regarded as a closed space, but seen in relation to Western Europe and other major regions. The course explores the constructive nature and historic variability of the term “Eastern Europe”.
  • The majority of courses have a comparative character. In general, comparisons are drawn between the various East European countries; in some cases, comparisons are drawn between Western and Eastern Europe.
  • One of the major aims of the degree program is to gain a deeper understanding of the intercultural and intracultural connections in Eastern Europe.

All offered courses can be found in the course catalogues of the participating universities, which are available on the LSF portals:
