The aim of this four-semester interdisciplinary Honours Master's programme in East European Studies is to provide specialized regionally focused knowledge on Central, Southeastern and Eastern Europe.
Students will be trained to analyse developments, patterns and situations in Eastern Europe and to embed these within a broader political, social, economic, historical and cultural framework. Along with professional knowledge in relevant disciplines and competence in one or more East European languages, students will be provided key skills that should enable them in future to assume responsible positions in the areas of politics and policy, economics, cultural affairs and science.
