The master's degree program is modularized and consists of modules that are completed in different areas: a basic area, an interdisciplinary area, as well as a disciplinarily structured area. There is also a language module and a vocational internship.
In accordance with the multidisciplinarity of the Eastern Europe Institute, the following modules can be selected:
History, Culture, Politics, Sociology, Law and Economics.
Each module offers a balanced range of courses and thematic seminars within its modules. At the beginning of the second semester, the profile subject is selected by selecting the first disciplinary module.
The acquisition and improvement of language skills in one or more Eastern European languages as well as an eight-week internship with a reference to Eastern Europe are integrative components of the study program, which are carried out self-organized at corresponding institutions.
The master's thesis (four months) is accompanied by a master colloquium.
Since 2014, selected Eastern European students at the Eastern Europe Institute of the Freie Universität Berlin can acquire a Master of Arts Double Degree with the University of Tartu, Estonia. Starting in November, students can apply for the Double Degree in their first semester of the MA Eastern European Studies.
