Call for Applications – Master of Arts in British and North American Cultural Studies

Applications for the winter semester 2019 are accepted until June 15, 2019.

The Master in British and North American Cultural Studies is an English-taught, two-year program designed for German and international graduate students from a variety of academic fields, countries, and backgrounds. Besides English and American Studies majors, we have in the past accepted students of History, Communications Studies, Sociology, Cultural Anthropology, and even a Musicologist. The internationality of the student body is one of the advantages of the program: MiBNACS students hail from – so far – 35 different countries.

Another advantage of the program is the fact that students are able to choose from a broad variety of fields, and can pursue their own research interests: We study the world of Walt Disney as intensively as the world of Shakespeare, Hamburgers as well as Harry Potter. Students are taught to approach their objects of study from multiple theoretical and methodological angles. The Master in British and North American Cultural Studies also gives students opportunities to choose individual configurations for their course of study, including combinations from Media Studies, Multilingualism and Politics of Language, and of course Theories of Cultural Studies.

Students are also invited to take classes from other departments and disciplines at the University of Freiburg, and beyond: ALU Freiburg is part of the EUCOR cooperation with the University of Basel, the Université de Haute-Alsace, the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT), and the Université de Strasbourg. As part of this European Campus program, students are free to take courses in France, Switzerland and Germany as part of their MiBNACS study program. Many win their first conference paper honors at the annual trinational Ph.D. and Masters Conference.

The program is tuition free for European Union citizens beyond the standard semester fee of currently 155,-- €.  From non-EU students, the state of Baden-Württemberg levies a fee of 1,500 Euros per semester.
