General Information

The programme combines literary and linguistic instruction and provides a broader cultural overview of the countries in North America, combining both Anglophone and Francophone and Spanish-speaking regions, from Canada to the United States through Mexico and the Caribbean. The programme is designed so that the students gain an overview of each of the two cultural areas at the same time and are instructed on their mutual linguistic, literary, and cultural influences. For this reason, the programme is structured in a modular manner. The mandatory part of the curriculum consists of core courses that have a methodological section in which students learn the basic theoretical approaches toward the concept of identity of oneself, of the other, and of various social groups, and focus on the concept and its various manifestations in literature, linguistics, and culture. The core section is followed by a variety of in-depth courses in which students gain orientation in the specific cultural phenomena in the Anglophone, Francophone, and Hispanophone worlds. The two compulsory modules combine either the Anglophone-Francophone area or Anglophone-Spanish-speaking area, allowing for an informed comparison. The advantage of the North American study programme lies in the fact that it offers excellent material for the study of some highly topical issues of today’s world: otherness, migration, immigration, and cultural and linguistic phenomena associated with integration in areas where different ethnic groups, languages, and cultures interact. In this respect, North America represents a model laboratory allowing us to study the processes that increasingly confront European and... [-]

Master in International Security

The politics of violence and uncertainty

In addition to being an absolute priority for governments across the world, security seems to have colonized our language as much as our everyday lives. Not a day goes by without politicians and media outlets mentioning yet another ‘security issue’. The master’s program in International Security asks what this tells us about our contemporary world and whether our world has really become more dangerous and uncertain than before.

At the intersection of international relations studies, security and defense studies, political theory, sociology and history, this program provides a deep understanding of what security and international security could look like in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world. It does so by analyzing the role of different actors in addressing and shaping international security issues, which go beyond the single framework of action of States. The program also seeks to provide students with the necessary critical skills for understanding and addressing the social-political mechanisms driving transnational armed conflicts, violence, and global uncertainty....
