New: Revised M.A. Program in American Studies

... starting in the Winter Semester of 2021/22. Apply now!

After a careful evaluation of the program, we are happy to present the revised Master in American Studies. It will now include a new introductory module and put an even stronger emphasis on professional experience.

The new module enables students from different backgrounds to create a common body of knowledge about state-of-the-art American Studies and a fresh set of research and writing skills. 

Based on extensive feedback from our students, we have also re-designed the Applied American Studies module. It will allow students to help organize exhibitions, festivals, or workshops and to gain valuable professional experience inside or outside academia by working as tutors or interns. 

The familiar strengths of our M.A. Program in American Studies – including flexibility in course choice, interdisciplinary elements, and a research workshop – will, of course, remain in place.

If you’d like to learn more about the new Master in American Studies, don’t hesitate to contact us: Isabell Klaiber or Carsten Schinko. You can apply here (deadline: May 31, 2021).
