Program Overview

TransAtlantic Masters prepares students for careers in business, administration, diplomacy, policy formulation and research. The program is operated by the European American University Consortium (EAUC). This vast network of renowned universities gives students the unique opportunity to complete the program at a minimum of two and up to three different universities in the United States and Europe. Therefore, students do not simply learn about transatlantic relations but experience the US and Europe from the perspective of multiple countries on both sides of the Atlantic, their (academic) cultures, and languages. TransAtlantic Masters focuses on the policy, politics, and society of the transatlantic region.

Students have the choice between two-degree options, after the successful completion of all study requirements. Choices are either a master’s degree in political sciences awarded by the University of North Carolina or a master’s degree from one of the European Partner sites. In the case of the Berlin site, this would be a Master of Arts in Social Sciences. In addition, students will receive a TransAtlantic Masters certificate. The choice of degree option has an influence on the application process.

The Humboldt University of Berlin (German: Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) is one of Berlin's oldest universities, founded in 1810 as the University of Berlin (Universität zu Berlin) by the liberal Prussian educational reformer and linguist Wilhelm von Humboldt, whose university model has strongly influenced other European and Western universities. From 1828 it was known as the Frederick William University (Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität), and later (unofficially) also as the Universität unter den Linden after its location. In 1949, it changed its name to Humboldt-Universität in honour of both its founder Wilhelm and his brother, geographer Alexander von Humboldt. In 2012, the Humboldt University of Berlin was one of eleven German top-universities (also known as elite universities) to win in the German Universities Excellence Initiative, a national competition for universities organized by the German Federal Government.
