Learning Goals of the MAGES (Master of Arts in German and European Studies) Program
At the conclusion of their two-year MAGES program of study, students will have acquired broad knowledge of Europe and Germany drawing on a range of disciplinary perspectives and their methodologies. They will have an appreciation and mastery of interdisciplinary analysis of European affairs, which entails among other things a capacity to interpret and apply theory within and across disciplines and to draw connections among discrete elements of a problem. MAGES graduates will have the ability to integrate academic and practical knowledge, and to demonstrate expertise in a self-defined area of European affairs. During their program of study, students will acquire valuable skills in oral communication, critical writing, and original (including collaborative) research, and improve their mastery of two European languages. Taken together, their newly acquired proficiencies enable our students to be informed participants in the transatlantic dialogue.
