MA program in Heidelberg.

We have also discussed the MA program for alumni of the One-Year Program and have received the answer that the program in principle should be open for alumni. However, there are no scholarships, meaning that alumni will have to find their own funding. As things stand now, they only have instruction in English during the summer semester. Deadlines for application are not completely settled yet either, so please contact us if you are interested.
