Applications are welcome from students world-wide. Applicants must have completed an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university, or its international equivalent, in the Social Sciences or Humanities (preferably in a relevant subject area such as political science, history, international relations, European studies, American studies, economics, or modern languages) by the time they plan to start the TAM Program.
TAM has a multi-faceted structure. If you have not reviewed the program details, please do so before beginning your application. Depending on the degree type for which you are applying, requirements may vary. All TAM applicants apply through UNC’s Graduate School. Please follow the school’s directions for submission and reporting requirements. The required, additional TAM forms to be submitted with your application can be downloaded from this page.

Now it is possible to seek two degrees simultaneously through our European Governance double-degree program. The universities offering double degrees are UNC plus Bremen University, Gothenburg University, the VU in Amsterdam, and UPF in Barcelona.
It is possible to seek single MA degrees through TAM from UNC, Humboldt University in Berlin, and Bremen University.
The UNC office of the TransAtlantic Master’s program will advise and assist you when possible, but ultimately it will be necessary for you to take full responsibility for acquiring your visa documents. You will need to contact the embassies/consulates of each country in which you intend to study and ask for the necessary requirements and paperwork. In general, you will have to provide documentation in the following areas: (1) Financial resources (2) Health insurance & Immunizations (3) Proof of admission to an academic program; (4) Police record / FBI background check. For the details of each country’s requirements, again, you must contact the consulate directly.
Immediately after admission, students who are not legal residents of the United States will need to begin the application process for the F1 visa which will allow them to study at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
New students should not arrange visas or purchase tickets for travel to the sites of their European modules until they have passed language screening in the fall semester at UNC if required.
TAM strongly supports the University’s core values encouraging diversity and equal educational opportunities throughout the University community. These values are articulated in the University’s non-discrimination policy and by the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.
