Description of Content:

The M.A. in North American Studies is a two-year research-oriented program. It attracts graduates interested in transdisciplinary work and intercultural exchange who wish to gain a thorough expertise in North American cultures, literatures, politics, histories, and economics. The curriculum puts literary and cultural studies at its core and offers a unique variety of potential fields of specialization. Run in joint venture with the Master program in North American Studies at the University of Cologne, the M.A. allows students to focus on areas of their own scholarly interest at different schools and departments, both in Bonn and Cologne. Since we stress a systematic training in transdisciplinary work, students have the opportunity to conduct original research toward an M.A. thesis.

Special Services: The M.A. program in North American Studies offers a carefully designed curriculum (120 CP), comprised of five core modules and four elective areas of specialization of which you choose two. The modules Literature and Theory, Processes and Practices of Popular Culture, and Transdisciplinary Perspectives explore North American literary and cultural studies as well as methods and theories of transdisciplinary research. In Research in Dialogue you meet established scholars 
in the field and successfully conceptualize, plan, and conduct your own research toward an original M.A. thesis to which you dedicate the final semester of the program. In Professional and Intercultural Competence you develop career-oriented skills according to your individual interests. The composition of this module will vary for each student and can include advanced language courses, field work, or internships. For your own specialization you select two of the four areas Politics & Society and Economics (taught in Bonn), History & Society and Postcolonial Studies (taught in Cologne), in each of which you attend two modules. In addition, the North American Studies Program features various events and activities, including an active Lecture Series, symposia, panel discussions, and field trips.

Job Opportunities: Alumni of the M.A. North American Studies pursue careers in journalism, publishing, media, public administration, politics and the foreign service, business, law as well as teaching and research.

Set of Competences to be Acquired: As a transdisciplinary, intercultural, and research-oriented program, the M.A. North American Studies helps students develop and deepen their analytic, methodological, cultural, and intercultural competences; with its strong focus on cultural theory, the program enables students to conduct interdisciplinary projects across disciplinary boundaries and cooperate constructively with cultural scholars situated in different research areas. Working with the program’s international faculty and student body, as well as optional participation in study abroad, internship, and international field trip programs, prepares students for future careers in North American and other international contexts.
