Course description

The Master's programme in "Atlantic Studies" stands out as the only one in Germany where students can choose to explore the social, cultural, political, and economic relationships in the South Atlantic. They can do this from either a historical perspective or an interdisciplinary approach within the humanities and social sciences. This programme delves into the connections between the four continents surrounding the Atlantic, considering both historical and contemporary globalization and migration processes. A unique aspect of this programme is its focus on the South Atlantic region. This is made possible by the distinctive combination of African History and Latin American History taught in Hannover. The programme also benefits from expertise in literary, cultural, and social sciences related to both continents. For those who opt for the historical specialization, the curriculum covers a broad timeline, from antiquity to modern history. Students in this programme will engage with subjects that span African History, Latin American History, and the broader interdisciplinary studies of the humanities and social sciences. This comprehensive approach ensures a deep understanding of the intricate relationships and dynamics at play in the Atlantic region.
