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...

The main goal of the Master study program at PANE is to broaden the knowledge and further raise the qualification of the students. The content of the studies of Prehistoric Archaeology of the Near East is organically linked to the previous Bachelor study program and complements it with courses focused on more complex and/or special topics of Near Eastern archaeology and cultural anthropology. Students are broadening their knowledge of the Arabic language, study other languages (depending on their geographic area of research) and intensively work on their diploma thesis (involves personal coaching by the thesis supervisor, communication with visiting lecturers and consultants throughout the academic year, participation on excavations and internships abroad for the purpose of hand-on work with the studied archaeological material). Students can choose within the optional courses those that help them best in their work on diploma theses or deepen their knowledge on the topic. They may choose not only the courses of PANE, but also courses offered by Central European Archaeology, Classical Archaeology, Museology, Ancient History or Religious Studies. The students may also choose courses at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, e.g. at the Geology Department....

Between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries, in the birth of modern European society, the Mediterranean underwent a profound transformation that defined a new framework for political and economic relations, as well as renewed cultural horizons.
