15/03/2019 – HCA master in American Studies

What, when & where

The Heidelberg Center for American Studies (HCA) invites applications for its newly designed four-semester Master of Arts in American Studies (MAS) program.

The MAS is an interdisciplinary program taught in English and aimed at qualified graduate students from Germany and around the world. It provides students with in-depth knowledge about the United States of America from an outside perspective.

The curriculum includes classes in human geography, history, literary and cultural studies, political science, economics and religious history. The unique design of the MAS gives students many opportunities to choose an individual configuration for their course of study, including multiple combinations of disciplines. Individual study plans may concentrate on disciplines from the humanities or the social sciences, or combine both. MAS students benefit from both excellent academic teaching by internationally renowned scholars and an interdisciplinary approach that meets the needs of professional and academic careers.
