American Studies Leipzig Announces the BA Research Track BART

Effective immediately, American Studies Leipzig will offer a new and experimental project-driven format of instruction specifically for BA students with a taste for research and a desire to sink their teeth into scholarship early on. The BA Research Track (BART) is a unique opportunity to participate in American Studies research during the BA education. It answers to a demand we diagnosed in our internal student survey in the summer of 2009.
