Structure of the studies

The four-semester MA program consists of ten modules and a Master's thesis (total of 120 ECTS). The program is divided into two phases: Study and Research, corresponding to the two years of the program.

During the first year, the Study phase, the students are expected to complete courses which cover the core themes of the program. The goal of the study phase is to provide an in-depth theoretical introduction to the three research themes and to equip the students with appropriate methodological skills for the Research phase.

In the Research phase the students will have the opportunity to pursue their own research project under the supervision of the program’s faculty members. In the second year of the program, the class schedule is reduced to a week of class or one or two sessions a semester.

The structure of the Master's program is presented below
