Honours Seminars

Honours Seminars

The CIVICA Honours Seminars offer an immersive and intensive 3 to 5 days learning experience to master's students across the CIVICA alliance.

These seminars focus on a deep dive into crucial global topics, promoting interdisciplinary and transnational approaches, and strengthening common European values. As a unique academic initiative held bi-annually, they provide an unparalleled opportunity for students to engage, network, and foster a shared sense of belonging within the CIVICA community, all while enriching their academic and personal development.

The CIVICA Honours seminars at a glance

  • Seasonal sessions
    The seminars are organised twice a year, with Winter Seminars in January and Summer Seminars in June. Starting from the academic year 2023/2024, each partner will offer one Honours seminar per year.

  • Inclusive participation
    CIVICA Honours Seminars are open to master's students based on predetermined slots across the alliance to accommodate both home and traveling students from CIVICA partner institutions with the aim of fostering a truly international and European learning experience.

  • Enhanced learning
    The seminars offer a learning experience that transcends regular coursework. Participants engage in a dynamic environment where dialogue, debate, and the exchange of ideas flourish. The culmination of the seminar experience is a group projector assignment, challenging students to apply their knowledge in collaborative and innovative ways. As further peculiarity, the seminars combine curricular activities with cultural and social activities, allowing participants to immerse themselves in the culture of the host city or country.

  • Community and connection
    One of the core objectives of the CIVICA Honours Seminars is to offer master's students the chance to come together, build networks, and foster relationships that span across Europe. It is an opportunity to connect with peers, faculty, and professionals, creating a vibrant community of forward-thinking individuals.
