M.A., European Thought and CultureThe Department of European Languages and Studies is pleased begin accepting applications for two new Masters Programs in European Thought and Culture.
- A “4+1” M.A. program allows UC Irvine undergraduates in good academic standing to apply in their penultimate year for formal admission, begin with the program’s three Core Seminars during their senior year, and spend a fifth year at UCI completing their nine courses, plus either a comprehensive examination or a thesis.
- Students with a B.A. degree from UCI or another institution can apply to the “stand-alone” program and pursue a one-year degree consisting of nine courses, plus either a comprehensive examination or a thesis.
This postgraduate degree is intended for students interested in pursuing careers in international business, government service, education, or other global professions. Furthermore, the rigorous and critical study of European thought and culture can provide a strong foundation for students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in such fields as European Studies, Critical Theory, Comparative Literature, or one of the national languages of Europe.
