  • 6. interdisciplinary focus: this international masters program covers various sub-disciplines in political science and sociology while incorporating cultural and economic questions into the curriculum. Academic courses are taught by highly qualified professors from different academic disciplines on various topics such as modernization and democratization, Europeanization, and migration. Students deepen their empirical knowledge of political processes using Germany, Turkey, and other countries and regions of Europe as examples. A unique characteristic of GeT MA is Joint-Teaching: each semester one course is taught jointly by faculty from both universities. By experiencing academics from Germany and Turkey within one course, GeT MA students come to understand social science topics from different perspectives, encounter individual teaching styles, and enjoy the benefits of both university systems. Eligibility GeT MA welcomes applications from all over the world. Applicants should demonstrate interest in obtaining comprehensive knowledge of Social Sciences from German and Turkish perspective as well as in experiencing the European dimension of politics in both countries. Application requirements include a BA degree in a relevant area of study and a proof of very good English skills: • TOEFL (internet-based): 79; • TOEFL (computer-based): 213; or • IELTS (International English Language Testing System): 6,5. Scholarship GeT MA is a fee based program. Tuition fees for the two-year academic program amount to €2.500 per semester and need to be paid at METU. Students have to cover costs of living. The collected fees are entirely used to cover the costs for the GeT MA program. GeT MA provides a certain number of scholarships for non-German students and a limited number of tuition fee reductions to qualified students of the program. Applicants interested in these scholarships should state their need in their statement of purpose in the application form. The distribution of scholarships will be decided during the admissions process. Applicants will be notified when being made an offer for the program. Furthermore, there is a variety of foundations that provide financial support to students, the most famous ones being those affiliated with German political parties. Moreover, there are several funding options offered by corporations, union and even by individuals. An internet search is highly recommended (i.e. Association of German Foundations). Each foundation chooses the candidates according to its own criteria for eligibility. It might even be the case that you cannot apply on your own but have to be recommended by a third person. Most foundations offer a special academic support program alongside the student’s regular studies. Additional counseling is provided by the Studienkompass. GeT MA applicants are highly encouraged to apply for external funding. Read more about the funding opportunities HERE http://www.sowi.hu-berlin.de/studiengaenge/masowi/getma/fees-and-funding Application Students are admitted to GeT MA – the German Turkish Masters Program in Social Sciences – once every year. Application packages must arrive in Berlin or be submitted to the METU online platform. Next application deadline is 31 May 2014. The admission process consists of the submission of the application package and an interview with the GeT MA admissions committee. Both METU and HU accept applications.

The amount depends on numerous factors, including the fellow’s current salary level, their level of experience, the number of people accompanying the fellow (partners, family members), the duration of the fellowship, and the continuation of funding from their home institution. Fellows can either keep their salary or they receive their own separate fellowship. Initially, fellows will be asked to classify themselves and make a suggestion for fellowship funding based on their current situation.
