About

The MA in American Studies at the Leipzig University is an interdisciplinary programme taught in English that combines approaches from the humanities and social sciences. 

Overview

The focus of the American Studies programme at the Leipzig University is on examining society, culture, history, literature and politics in the United States and their respective positioning in international and intercultural contexts. This examination occurs on the basis of an in-depth consideration of the interdisciplinary methodology and theory of American studies. The interdisciplinary nature of American studies is reflected in the structure of the modules. 

The majority are defined thematically rather than methodologically, as is usually the case elsewhere, and deal with a particular complex of topics from different specialist perspectives. To this end, Leipzig’s Institute of American Studies cooperates with experts from the fields of political science, sociology, etc. One didactic focus of the master’s programme in American Studies is project work, whether in the research seminars of the specialisation modules or in the publication project of the programme’s own key qualification module (www.aspeers.com).

The aim is to train students’ skills in the independent development and implementation of projects and to promote their linguistic and cultural competence in transatlantic thematic fields.

Careers

The interdisciplinary nature of the American Studies programme unlocks a wide range of work opportunities for graduates: alumni of the Institute of American Studies work in international companies and cultural organisations, for binational institutions dedicated to German-American exchange as well as for international NGOs, publishing houses and in the media. Graduates can also pursue further academic research at German, European or American universities.
