Lectures focus on universal laws and manifestations of cultural life of human societies but with a clear emphasis on specific elements of European past and present day situation.
Students in the European Cultures program at University of Wroclaw will be invited to make a common journey through European cultural heritage to learn how to analyse and understand not only the meaning of fine arts' objects, but mostly social phenomena based upon cultural relations. Therefore the proposed curriculum of study is focused on analysis of communication systems, values' transfer mechanisms, meaning of symbolic structures used in both everyday life and politics, cultural and political history seen as an impulse for change in social life etc. Participation in the program should strengthen students' knowledge of European culture and civilisations in context of social life and social needs.

After completing studies students can be able to translate different cultural codes of communications, organize cooperation between members of societies of different European cultures and promote understanding of cultural differentiation in social life as the only way to peaceful development in nowadays world.
