FRENCH-GERMAN MASTER IN MUSICOLOGY
PARIS IV SORBONNE - SAARBRÜCKEN
DEADLINE: 17 JULY 2009
From September 2009 the University of Saarland at Saarbrücken offers an integrated French-German Master of Arts in musicology. The course is offered in cooperation with the Université de Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV). Students spend the first year in Paris, the second together with their French fellow students in Saarbrücken. The master diploma is issued by both institutions and recognized in both countries. The course is research-oriented and includes a training period which allows contacts with research institutes and cultural institutions in Paris and Saarbrücken.
The course concentrates particularly on the characteristics of music history in Germany and France with a special focus on the process of cultural transfer. Due to the differences in teaching and research, the students are introduced to the cultural history and science culture of both countries. These experiences will augment students’ intercultural competence.
The course starts each winter. The master thesis may be written in French or German.
Through its geographical situation and history, the University of Saarland maintains close relations with France. Paris can be reached by train within less than two hours; flight connections exist from Saarbrücken and the nearby airports of Zweibrücken, Frankfurt-Hahn and Frankfurt/Main.
Financial support is possible. Applicants finishing their BA during the summer may enclose a certified overview of subjects and marks.
Deadline for applications to the address below is *17 July 2009*.
