European Humanities University
An education at EHU 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 CampusEuropae 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.
For students and scholars from Belarus, EHU is a haven of academic freedom—the only Belarusian university that operates in a free and democratic environment. Founded in Minsk in 1992, EHU became a “university-in-exile” in 2004 after it was shut down by Belarusian authorities for standing up against attempts to undermine its academic freedom.
EHU remains committed to its Belarusian identity while seeking closer integration into the international academic community.
EHU provides higher and low residence study programmes on undergraduate, graduate and PhD levels in the field of liberal arts and humanities. There are around 1500 students, currently studying at EHU, most of them being of Belarusian origin. Study programmes are taught either in several languages (Russian, English and German/French) or full English-taught, as double-degree undergraduate's programmes in World Politcs and Economy is.
