European Joint Master's Degree in English and American Studies
The two-year English-taught European Joint Master's Degree English and American Studies is aimed at highly motivated students with a background in English and American Studies and a strong record of academic success. It offers specialized academic training in English and American Studies focusing on the three core topics of literature, linguistics and cultural studies. The universities in the consortium Bamberg (D), Graz (A), New York (mobility partner only - USA), Paris Diderot (F), Pécs (H), and Venice (I) are working together to guarantee a high quality international curriculum with regional aspects.
Students interested in the programme apply to one of the consortium partners as their home university, and will be able to draw on the expertise and focus of all the partners in the context of the joint degree programme.
The mobility semester can be spent at any of the partner institutions. Places are allocated according to available resources. Students must not expect to be sent to their first or second choice of mobility university, although preferences indicated in the course of the application process will be taken into account.
A summer school will also be offered on an annual basis to allow students to further specialize and gather additional ECTS.
At the successful completion of the programme students will be awarded a jointly conferred master's degree automatically recognized in the countries of all consortium partners.
