Best Part time Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in Netherlands. The Double Master’s Programme in European Studies gives students the opportunity to benefit from the outstanding expertise of two top-ranking universities. Participants of the programme study at each university for one year and graduate with two master’s degrees from the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences, University of Cologne, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Maastricht University. The Double Master is an ambitious research-based and interdisciplinary programme which has a strong focus on the European Union, its institutions and policies. Students develop an in-depth understanding of the EU and of the workings of politics and society in an integrated Europe. The programme equips graduates with excellent methodological skills, enabling them to operate at an advanced level in an international research environment. During their year abroad, students will be exposed to an international environment that allows them to improve their intercultural and language skills. Students admitted to the Double Master’s Programme pursue a Research Master in European Studies at Maastricht University in their first year and complete modules of the Master of Arts in Political Science at the University of Cologne in their second year. The programme is based on the mutual recognition of credit points by both universities. Students attend a colloquium and write their master’s thesis during their year in Cologne. The thesis is jointly supervised by professors at both universities. In cooperation with Maastricht University The Fac­ulty of Arts and So­cial Sci­ences (FASoS) has ap­prox. 1,800 stu­dents and is one of the six fac­ul­ties at Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity. Its ed­u­ca­tional ap­proach is based on the prin­ci­ple of Prob­lem-Based Learn­ing (PBL). The Fac­ulty has a strong in­ter­na­tional ori­en­ta­tion, ev­i­denced by its in­ter­na­tional stu­dent body and its ex­ten­sive re­search. The Fac­ulty has an ex­cel­lent lo­ca­tion in the cen­tre of Maas­tricht. Pro­gramme du­ra­tion: 4 se­mes­ters, full-time Pro­gramme start: Be­gin­ning of Sep­tem­ber in Maas­tricht De­grees awarded: Re­search Mas­ter in Eu­ro­pean Stud­ies by Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity and Mas­ter of Arts in Po­lit­i­cal Sci­ence by the Uni­ver­sity of Cologne Lan­guage of in­struc­tion: Eng­lish Fees: Stu­dents pay tu­ition fees at Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity dur­ing their first year of stud­ies (ap­prox. €1,980 for EU ap­pli­cants; for more de­tails on the tu­ition fee, please see the web­site of Maas­tricht Uni­ver­sity) and a se­mes­ter con­tri­bu­tion at the Uni­ver­sity of Cologne (ap­prox. €260 per term, which in­cludes a stu­dent travel card which is valid on all pub­lic trans­port in North Rhine-West­phalia). Career perspectives Graduates of this double degree will be well prepared for the demands of an international employment market in European Studies, which increasingly expects applicants to have studied in more than one country. Graduates of the programme are particularly well qualified for a career in the institutions of the European Union, other areas of public administration or international companies. The research-oriented nature of the degree also enables graduates to move on to doctoral research, or to research-related work in think tanks or NGOs. These career perspectives require familiarity with different academic cultures, and thus graduates with a double degree will be better prepared for these kinds of positions than most of their peers with degrees from a single university. Entry requirements An excellent bachelor’s degree in the Humanities or Social Sciences with strong proficiency in Political Science (30 ECTS). Furthermore a minimum of further 12 ECTS in Political Science or in Methodology and Empirical Social Research Bachelor final grade equivalent to at least 2.7 (German grading system) English at level C1 (CEFR) or equivalent (TOEFL min. ibt 100; IELTS min. 7.0; Cambridge CAE (B) or CPE (C)).

The world loves American culture, but is deeply distrustful of American power and politics. In Radboud University we offer critical insights into both. Our Master's Program gives students the opportunity to acquire solid expertise in relation to the concept of "America" in a variety of fields: US history, literature, culture (including popular culture, film, theater and art) as well as political history, foreign policy, constitutional law and social science. Radboud University distinguishes itself from other American Studies programs through its emphasis on the cultural and political relations between the United States, its neighbors, and Europe. True to the tradition of American Studies, our program teaches students to approach issues from different angles and to think in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary ways. We also offer excellent internships thanks to our global network. This means that students who go on to study for a Master's degree have unique, near-native language abilities. In Radboud University you will find yourself in a dynamic learning environment where the level of scholarship and communication in (American) English is extremely high. This is one of the reasons why our programs are so popular. Another is the choice Radboud offers between two fascinating fields within which you can create your own custom-made program: "Literatures and Cultures of North America in International Perspective" and "Transnational America: Politics, Culture and Society." Students like the variety these programs offer. They tell us: "It's so much fun. There are so many interesting options to choose from."... [-]
