Master Programs

Master programs were introduced as part of the Bologna Process to establish uniform courses of study and degrees throughout Europe. A Bachelor degree is required to enroll in a Master degree program. The study units in the Master programs are divided into modules consisting of thematically related lectures, seminars, and practical exercises. For each successfully completed module, a student earns credits based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

Students of law, medicine, pharmaceutical sciences, and teacher education must take a State Examination (Staatsexamen). The curricula of these programs are structured differently and usually take ten to twelve semesters. They are only offered in German. For further information, please visit the respective German websites.

For detailed information on the basic administrative steps (pdf) please get in touch with the International Office and the relevant faculty.
