The Freie Universitaet Berlin invites applications for the distant learning MA program East European Studies online.

The multi-disciplinary two-year program functions with a learning management system and deals with Introduction to East European Studies, Politics, Sociology, Economics, Law and Humanities, Intercultural Communication, Project Management, Conflict Management as well as cross-disciplinary issues like Migration, Globalization, and European Integration. The program is directed by Klaus Segbers.
The Master's degree will be awarded provided the following requirements have been successfully fulfilled: proof of advanced East European language skills, completion of all online courses, participation in four one-week in-house classes in Berlin, report on an internship or study project and the Master`s thesis.
