CIVICA Engage Track

CIVICA Engage Track

The CIVICA Engage Track is a European multi-campus, interdisciplinary bachelor experience with a focus on civic engagement.

By combining academic study and social commitment, the selected students can explore and respond to value-laden topics like responsibility and sustainability.

The CIVICA European Week offers a space for group work, as well as interaction and collaboration with other like-minded CIVICA Engage students from across Europe and beyond.
