A summary of accredited degree programmes at the University of Bamberg is available here.

Master’s degree programmes can be pursued following the successful completion of a university degree. Standard programme durations range from two to four semesters. For several master’s degree programmes, an extension of the programme duration is possible in cases where students are pursuing career-integrated studies.

Following successful completion of the master’s curriculum, students receive one of the following master’s degrees: the “Master of Arts” (M.A.), the “Master of Education” (M.Ed.) or the “Master of Science” (M.Sc.).

Please be aware that prospective students must apply for admission prior to enrolling in a master’s degree programme.
