Overview

Programme overview

The Master's programme in Transatlantic Studies focuses on the process of exchange between North America and Europe in order to understand the role of US cultural, geopolitical and economic power and the interaction with partners across the Atlantic. This programme takes a multidisciplinary approach allowing you to focus on a topic that you are interested in.

The program is firmly grounded in American studies including cultural and political history, international relations, and political science to critically map, investigate, and evaluate transatlantic relations at the intersection of politics, history, and culture, including literature, visual media and music.
