European Humanities University

Introduction

An education at European Humanities University does more than immerse students in a range of subjects and disciplines. It promotes a transdisciplinary approach as well as the critical thinking skills that empower them to develop innovative solutions, ideas, and enterprises.

At EHU, students study art, business, communication, cultural heritage, visual and cultural studies, design, law, philosophy, politics and economy, psychology, public policy, sociology…and they combine theory and practice through interactive, hands-on learning opportunities. They hone their communication skills in a state-of-the-art media lab, observe elections as participants in the Election Observation: Theory and Practice program, practice legal skills with European and American experts and at the Philip C. Jessup International Moot Court Competition, organize and participate in exhibitions and cultural events, and develop and implement various projects of their own.

Participation in mobility programs like Erasmus+ or Campus Europae and the right to travel freely within the European Union’s visa-free Schengen Area helps students acquaint themselves with Europe and the benefits of European integration.

EHU faculty are leaders and partners in academic projects that promote international and interdisciplinary research and teaching. EHU’s alumni association offers ways for alums to benefit from staying in touch with each other and their alma mater.
