One must choose to pursue one of two types of degrees offered by TAM: a UNC degree or a European degree.
Students applying for the TransAtlantic Masters Program have the option of choosing between various European degree options and a master's degree in Political Science granted through the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Before beginning the application process, students should therefore carefully consider which degree best suits their own interests and abilities.
At European sites, students who elect to submit and defend their thesis receive a formal qualification from that site.
* All European degrees offered are Masters degrees.
The procedure for applying to the TAM program is significantly different for those students wishing to obtain a master's degree from UNC. If you choose to receive a UNC-CH M.A. degree in political science, you must apply both to the TAM office and to the Graduate School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Jan 8, 2013, is the deadline by which all your application and supporting materials should be submitted. This is also the application deadline for those who wish to pursue a European degree. These applicants will submit all application materials directly to the TAM Office.
