With its new M.A. „History – Environment – City“ the Technical University of Darmstadt offers a unique insight into the historical origins of modern urban life and its ecological conditions. From a long-time perspective students will get a better understanding of current and future environmental problems and learn how to make urban life more sustainable as the basic component of modern society. The four-term course (2 years) which is mainly taught in German leads to the international approved grade “Master of Arts” (M.A.).
Students will have to meet the requirement of a B.A. in History, Sociology, Architecture, Constructional Engineering, Cultural Sciences or in another relevant subject. Job opportunities will be found in
archives, museums, scientific and educational institutions
urban, regional or landscape planing
tourism, industrial archaeology, preservation of historic and cultural heritage
public relations and media.
Interdisciplinary classes will enable the students to bridge scientific disciplines and methodological approaches and to increase their knowledge and abilities in the field of urban and environmental history. Additional classes will be taught to foster their abilities in job-relevant areas like rhetoric and professional appearance, computing, foreign languages and “soft skills”.
Darmstadt is situated in the South of Germany, only about 30 kms from Frankfurt Main with its international airport. The city lies on the northern foothills of the beautiful Odenwald region near the romantic Rhine valley. A centre of culture and literature for many centuries, Darmstadt is also well-known for its Technical University with its strong interdisciplinary potentials. In recent years the university has put a special stress on urban and environmental studies.
