The aim of the graduate program, which is taught in German, is to provide students with expertise in Eastern, East Central and South East European area studies. You will be required to collect 120 ECTS credits over the course of four semesters. You can choose two or three subjects of study. In addition, you will be required to complete a project course lasting two semesters, intensive language courses, a summer school in Eastern Europe and an internship related to the region.
You will be taught by specialists in East European studies from both Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich and the University of Regensburg. The Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies, the Collegium Carolinum, the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS), the Institute for East European Law and the East European Department of the Bavarian State Library are all involved in the graduate program.
By the time you graduate, you will have learned to analyse developments and situations in Eastern Europe and place them in their political, legal, economic, historical and cultural contexts.
