Call for Applications: Interdisciplinary Joint Master’s Programme in South-Eastern European Studies – University of Belgrade

Deadline 31 May 2012

The University of Belgrade – Faculty of Political Sciences (FPS) is pleased to announce a call for applications for the Interdisciplinary Joint Master’s Programme in South-Eastern European Studies.

This two year MA programme is conducted as a joint degree between four partner universities (Graz, Belgrade, Skopje and Zagreb) and commences in Belgrade in October 2012.  Students enroll in and spend the first year at the University of Belgrade – Faculty of Political Sciences. In the second year, students spend at least one semester on mobility at a partner university. Partner universities include Graz, Skopje, Zagreb, Bologna, Ljubljana, Novi Sad, Poitiers, Sarajevo and Tetovo.

Why Southeast European Studies in Belgrade?
You will be studying South Eastern Europe in its very centre, where you’ll gain unique insights in your chosen field of interest and learn one or more languages of the region.  You will also learn from an outstanding group of FPS and foreign professors, with excellent academic records and long-time expertise in South-Eastern Europe.  Last, but not least, as part of an academic community with a strong international character, you’ll enjoy the exciting social life in Belgrade, too.

Content of the Programme
The Interdisciplinary Joint Master in South-Eastern European Studies is an international and interdisciplinary programme in social sciences and humanities of the highest quality which enables participants to effectively understand the interrelationship between law, politics, economics and culture with an emphasis on South-Eastern Europe. The programme prepares students for doctoral studies and professional life in a variety of other fields including work in international, local governmental and non-governmental organisations, journalism, business, scientific research, and consultancy.

In the first year, students take core courses which include an introduction to multidisciplinary approaches in the study of South-East Europe, public law, political science, history, economics and cultural studies. In the summer after the first year a joint summer school is held for all students from the participating universities to complete the compulsory core modules. In the second year, students attend one of the partner universities and specialize in their desired field. There are also optional provisions in place to offer students professional training and internship positions.  In the final semester students write a master thesis reflecting their ability to work on a scientific subject independently.
All compulsory subjects are conducted in English though students are able to take classes in other languages. Language acquisition is an important aspect of the joint degree and students are expected to learn a regional language and/or the predominant language of their mobility institution.

Teaching staff
We pride ourselves for being able to gather an international team of teachers from leading universities and research institutes in Serbia, Austria, Great Britain and the US.  You will be able to further expand your studies by spending the third – mobility – semester at one of nine partner universities in eight European countries, where you will specialize in one of many fields. Further datails on lecturers and the compulsory courses they will teach during the first two semesters are available here.

Academic Degree
Students completing the Interdisciplinary Joint Master’s Programme in South-Eastern European Studies earn the degree “Master of Arts”, abbreviated MA. The joint degree is awarded by all four partners (pending accreditation at some partners).
