Call for Applications, Global Studies Master’s Degree Programme 2019-21Master 29.09.2018
Within the GSP students learn to approach the world and globalization from various regional perspectives and disciplines, comprising sociology, political sciences, anthropology and cultural geography. The programme’s global and multicultural experience is enhanced by the diversity of its students who study at different places around the world together. Each group comprises students from all parts of the world.
The programme received many high-ranking awards including the BMW Group Award for Intercultural Learning (2004) and the Top Ten International Master’s Programme title by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft (2006). In 2011 these successes were confirmed again with the reaccreditation of the GSP in Germany. Since 2001, more than two hundred eighty students from over sixty countries on all the continents have participated in the programme.
From mid-April the programme begins every year with the summer semester in Freiburg. In their second semester, students can choose between FLACSO Argentina in Buenos Aires (Argentina) or Cape Town University (South Africa), while for their third semester students have the choice between Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi (India) or Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok (Thailand). In the fourth semester, students return to Freiburg for their MA thesis and final examination.
The application deadline for the GSP class of 2019 is the 30th of November 2018 (date of receipt).
The Programme Director of the Global Studies Programme is Dr. Caroline Janz.
