Master Atlantic Studies in History, Culture and Society

COURSE CONTENT AND COURSE OF STUDY

Course Content

The master degree in Atlantic Studies in History, Culture and Society is based on a novel concept in both German and international universities which consciously exceeds the existing disciplinary boundaries. Against the background of historical and current globalisation processes and migrations, it places the interdependence between the three continents around the Atlantic in the foreground of teaching and research and overcomes traditional national perspectives.

Course of Study

The master programme Atlantic Studies in History, Culture and Society is made up of mandatory and elective modules that build on each other. In addition, the degree programme is characterised by a strong practical relevance. In the practical module, an internship with international relevance at home or abroad or a research stay abroad is planned, usually combined with a semester abroad at an African, Latin American / Caribbean, Canadian or US American, European university with an Atlantic / global focus.
