Department International Planning Systems

The Master "Border Studies" is dedicated to one of the great challenges of the 21st century: boundaries. The aim is to provide students with the necessary skills to play a crucial role in debates on national and European identities, global mobility, migration, cultural diversity, citizenship and cross-border cooperation. For this purpose, students develop a comprehensive understanding of boundaries as well as processes of delimitation and new limitation in Europe and worldwide.

The trilingual master is offered by four universities in Germany, France and Luxembourg and is based on a long-term cooperation between the partner universities. In addition to the University of Kaiserslautern, the Université du Luxembourg, the Université de Lorraine and the Saarland University are involved. The master's programme is funded by the German-French University (DFH).

Further information can be found on the homepage of the University of the Greater Region.


On Feb. 24, 2021, starting at 4 pm, this year's information event will be held digitally via Zoom. It includes a presentation of the master's program and the opportunity to live chat with lecturers from the universities (in German, French and English).
