Master’s degree programmes at the Faculty of Arts

You will need a Bachelor’s degree to be admitted to a Master’s degree programme, and sometimes additional conditions apply. The Faculty of Arts has three types of Master’s degree programmes. Depending on the type, they last one, one-and-a-half or two years. All the Master’s programmes lead to the Master of Arts (MA) title.

Master’s degree programmes at the Faculty of Arts

The three types are:

  • Regular Master’s degree programmes (60 ECTS or 90 ECTS) Regular Master’s degree programmes are the logical next step after a Bachelor’s degree in the same subject. The Master’s phase involves research, for example, resulting in a thesis. Every Bachelor’s degree programme allows you to proceed to a regular Master’s degree programme in the same subject (follow-on Master's). The independent Master’s programmes (those without a related Bachelor’s degree programme) do have entry requirements and in some cases also a selection procedure.
  • Master of Arts in Teaching programmes (120 ECTS) A Master of Arts in Teaching programme lasts two years and ends with a grade one teaching qualification. In the first year, the emphasis is on subject-related course units and the thesis. This year is very similar to the regular Master's degree programme. In the second year students follow a work-study programme that includes an extensive teaching placement.
  • Research Master’s programmes (120 ECTS)
    Conducting research is what a Research Master is all about. It is perfect preparation for a possible career as an academic researcher. Research Master’s programmes take two years and admission is via a selection procedure.
