Federalism and Minority Studies, MSc

Master of Science in Federalism and Minority Studies

Europe is committed to a rich culture of diversity that includes regions and minorities while successfully upholding democratic principles. This system is currently being tested from various angles and both the rights, status and protection of minorities and liberal democracy as a whole are under intense scrutiny and are being questioned.

The university course "Federalism and Minority Studies, MSc" offers students a wide range of modules dealing with current European issues, but also insights into the historical developments, which have created the rich texture of the political landscapes, that make up Europe. To this end, students examine the different dimensions of minority issues (political, social, systemic, economic, and legal) and their recursive connections and interdependencies. In addition to acquiring detailed knowledge on these issues, students will also be equipped with methodological tools that enable them to compare and contrast European and global developments. These transferable skills enable them to analyze power structures, governmental variants and protective mechanisms around the world.

Target Group

European and Non-European people (Far East and North America) from diverse backgrounds (policy makers, representatives from NGO's as well as international institutions and consultants), who want to gain valuable and sound understanding of the different dimensions of European minority issues (political, social, systemic, economic, and legal) and their recursive connections and interdependencies in order to compare and contrast European and global developments.
