The TransAtlantic Masters Program (TAM) trains graduate students pursuing international careers in administration, diplomacy, business, policy-making, consulting, teaching, and research. Offered by way of partnerships between world-renowned universities in the United States, Europe and the Middle East, TAM is a unique and intensive degree program. TAM students pursue graduate study on both sides of the Atlantic while earning a master’s degree.
In the face of accelerated European integration and intensification of US-EU relations, it has become imperative that students wishing to enter into international careers understand the institutional history and social, political, cultural, and economic practices of nations that comprise the EU’s international community. TAM prepares students to assume positions of leadership in world affairs by providing them with a broad comparative understanding of EU-US politics, policy, and social evolution, complemented by expertise in a particular nation or topic.
To meet the demands of students wishing to pursue various career goals in the expanding transatlantic arena, the TAM program offers different tracks as well as various degree options. Students can choose to receive a master’s degree in Political Science from the University of North Carolina, or they may opt for a degree granted by one of the European universities. In the case of our new double-degree option, students will seek both a UNC and a European MA simultaneously.
