Call for Applications für den nächsten GSP-Jahrgang

Das Global Studies Programme (M.A. Social Sciences) hat den Call for Applications für den nächsten Studienjahrgang veröffentlicht.

The application deadline for the GSP intake of 2024 is November 30th 2023 (online application)

The Global Studies Programme, initiated in 2001, is a two-year master’s degree programme. The main objective of the programme is to study various cultures and regions within the social sciences, focusing on the Global South. The GSP is conducted jointly by the University of Freiburg (Germany), the University of Cape Town (South Africa), Jawaharlal Nehru University (New Delhi, India), FLACSO Argentina (Buenos Aires) and Chulalongkorn University (Bangkok).

Within the GSP, students learn to approach the world and globalization from various regional perspectives and disciplines, comprising sociology, political sciences, anthropology, and cultural geography. The programme’s global and multicultural experience is enhanced by the diversity of its students who study at different places around the world together. Each group comprises students from all parts of the world.

The programme received many high-ranking awards including the BMW Group Award for Intercultural Learning (2004) and the Top Ten International Master’s Programme title by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft (2006). In 2011 these successes were confirmed again with the reaccreditation of the GSP in Germany. Since 2001, more than six hundred and fifty students from over sixty countries on all the continents have participated in the programme.

From mid-April the programme begins every year with the summer semester in Freiburg. In their second semester, students can choose between FLACSO Argentina in Buenos Aires or Cape Town University, while for their third semester students have the choice between Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi or Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. In the fourth semester, students return to Freiburg for their MA thesis and final examination.

The application deadline for the GSP intake of 2024 is November 30th, 2023. The online application portal is only open from September 15th 2023 to November 30th 2023. Between September and November there will be two virtual information events for everyone interested in the programme, more information and the exact dates will be published on our website.
