As the master program East European Studies (EES) takes a closer look on current challenges in Eastern Europe as well as developments outside the region affecting the area of Eastern Europe, different perspectives are important. Not only do the in-house classes take place in Berlin, one of Europe’s most multicultural, diverse and cultural rich capitals with a very active and lively Eastern Europe community offering food, culture events and art exhibitions from East European countries, the participating students themselves also come together from all over the world. Around 60 master students from six different continents come together to discuss global politics during the two-year Master programs of International relations and East European Studies online at Freie Universität Berlin.
Needless to say: Different cultural, educational and professional backgrounds guarantee interesting class discussions and offer the unique opportunity to get to know different perspectives on current topics of international relations. Students and graduates in East European studies come from all over the world including many regions of Eastern Europe of course, such as Ukraine, Russia, Albania or Romania, but also the United States, Germany or the Netherlands, offering an astoundingly opportunity for cross-cultural communication. Eastern European professionals and students can offer valuable insights in the region, while students from North America or Western Europe can offer their interpretations from another perspective.
After graduating you will continue to profit from the international Alumni-Network, to keep in touch with your fellow students, create a professional network and see where your career paths are taking you.
