Master Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften

Masterstudium in Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften

Der Bereich der Humanities and Social Sciences (Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften) beinhaltet viele verschiedene Studienbereiche, bei denen meist der Mensch im Mittelpunkt steht. Die Disziplinen untersuchen die geistigen Errungenschaften der Menschheit und deren Auswirkungen auf die Gesellschaft. Mögliche Themen sind Sprache, Literatur, Politik, Philosophie, Geschichte und vieles mehr.
Der Bereich Humanities and Social Sciences ist für einen Master im Ausland besonders interessant, da die regionale Kultur die Inhalte der Studiengänge stark prägt. Ein Schwerpunkt in Politik oder Literatur eröffnet im Ausland andere Blickwinkel auf allgemeine Themen und Begebenheiten.
Bei Masterstudiengängen im Bereich der Humanities and Social Sciences wählst du meist einen Major (Hauptfach oder Schwerpunkt). Den Major kannst du durch einen zweiten Major oder einen Minor (Nebenfach) ergänzen.
