The interdisciplinary Master's program "Medieval and Renaissance Studies" is supported by more than 10 departments and institutes, spanning 5 university faculties.
It is designed for students from Germany and abroad whose previous academic work has included an emphasis on medieval studies. Through specialization in a particular area, students of this program will deepen their knowledge of their chosen field. At the same time, through participation in relevant courses in neighbouring fields and interdisciplinary training in medieval studies methods, they will acquire a methodologically and theoretically broad scientific view of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

The two-year program is organized into three sections: the curriculum individuale, curriculum commune and curriculum particulare.
In the curriculum individuale, students choose their personal area of specialization. Their Master's thesis will then be carried out within this area of expertise.
The curriculum commune encompasses courses in interdisciplinary methods, lecture cycles and a module of practice-oriented activities, which all students of the program must complete.
In the curriculum particulare, interdisciplinary knowledge and methods are fostered through participation in courses representing the whole spectrum of medieval studies offered at the University of Freiburg.


Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
