Call for applications MACR

Starting from the Winter Semester 2021/22, the MACR will be offered both completely online as well as in a blended learning format with personal encounters in Potsdam. We will enroll a max. of 30 Students, who can select whether they will study online or in Potsdam, Germany. The students who decide to come to Potsdam will have regular face-to-face sessions with our teachers and engage in group learning in personal settings. Students who study the MACR completely online will also meet our teachers, yet in virtual classroom settings and at lesser intervals.

Both online and Potsdam-based students will form one group, which will be provided equal materials, content and engage in group works and study individually. As we are planning an introductory week in Potsdam at the beginning of the programme for all students, we envisage a group finding process to take place which can be drawn upon in the course of the master’s. We also plan a personal encounter after the second semester after all modules have been studied, for reflection on our learning process and an exchange on planned research for the student's Master’s Thesis.

General structure of the MACR (for both tracks):

· Three semesters; 7 modules plus MA Thesis; 90 ECTS

· Language of instruction: English

· Deadline for application: May 15th, 2021 Admissions are expected to be communicated by May/June 2021.

· Beginning of the programme - Opening Summer School: end August/early September. Regular start: October 2021

· Tuition fee: 7.600€ for the complete programme (Payment in instalments per semester possible)

It is also possible to attend only selected modules, please contact us for further information.
