Recently I saw a presentation given by Ulrike Pokorski da Cunha in Stuttgart (and I had blogged about it). She just informed me about a master-level course that she is involved in. Please find more information below, on this flyer (pdf), or on the course’s webpage. Deadline for applications is March 31st 2010
If you are interested, please feel free to contact me, I will forward any requests you might have
The Cologne University of Applied Sciences is offering a “Bicultural Master Course ‘Integrated Water Resource Management for Arab and German Professional’ “. The master program will be offered to selected Arab and German applicants. The preparatory course, as well as the first term, will be offered in Amman (University of Jordan, WERS Centre), Jordan. The second term will be offered in Cologne (Cologne University of Applied Sciences, ITT), Germany. During the third term the students will work on their master thesis related to the Arab or German water sector. Besides the principles of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), students will also be imparted with professional skills, which are essential for the success of international projects: intercultural knowledge, project and information management, communication and leadership skills.
Unique of this master course is its emphasis on the bicultural aspect. Each module is conceived and taught together both by an Arab and a German lecturer. Additionally, students work throughout the program in tandem aiming at a mutual exchange of language and culture. The exchange of social and economic aspects of both countries occupies an important part in the master course.
The Arab students may apply for a full scholarship for the entire duration of the course, whereas the German students may apply for a partial scholarship covering their journey to Jordan and their stay during the Master thesis in an Arab country.
