ma study programme

The programme is addressed to Bachelor Degree holders that come from the Humanities, Social Studies, Sciences, Mathematics or Engineering, ideally with previously gained knowledge in Philosophy or History of Science. The courses of the programme will be in English and German.

The content of the programme focuses on four main topics:

  • Knowledge & Method

  • History & Society

  • Culture & Transfer

  • Responsibility & Application


In the first year of their studies, students amplify their previous knowledge and gain new basic skills. In the second year they follow their own main research (at RUB or abroad) or conduct an application-oriented project in a work experience. The MA thesis completes the second year and the MA programme.

During the whole study programme students develop the representative, communicative and social competences they need for their future jobs in or outside academia.
