BA and MA Degrees in American Studies
As of 2006, the Institute for American Studies offers two fully accredited degree programs based on the common European framework created by the 'Bologna-Process.'
The BA American Studies introduces students to US-American culture, literature, society and politics, and to the varied academic skills needed to critically engage the many dimensions of the United States and its roles in the world. Find more information on the BA program here.
Each year, several of our best students are chosen to study at Ohio University for a year as part of the DAAD's BA Plus Program.
The MA American Studies substantially broadens and deepens students' understanding of the complexities of US-American culture, literature, society and politics, and actively develops their academic skills, their research capabilities, and their professional profile in a global context. Find more information on the MA program here.
