Student mobility is one of the key features of the program. During their four-semester studies, students study in three different universities: the first semester is taught in Kaunas, the second in Mainz; for the third semester students choose between Stockholm and Tartu; and the fourth semester students stay at the university of their M.A. thesis main supervisor.

The obligatory student mobility, as well as teacher mobility, contribute to the academic networking of all involved and provide a fertile ground for developing student’s intercultural communication skills, alongside the academic ones, further. SoMu supports student mobility by avoiding various problems usually involved in recognizing studies from abroad, therefore, in a joint degree study programme, no translation of national qualifications is needed.

The international dimension of SoMu is enhanced through intercultural academic environment, student mobility abroad, and through courses lectured by prominent specialists and scholars of international repute.
