Between 2008 and 2013, the "MA Anglistik/Amerikanistik" and the "European Joint Master's Degree" had been separate programmes. The precursor of the "MA English and American Studies" is the "MA Anglistik/Amerikanistik," which had been offered until the summer term 2013. For information on it click here.
