As of Fall 2019 the program "Master in Web Science" will not accept new students. Instead, we will offer the program "Master in Web and Data Science". Starting from winter semester 2019/20, all newly incoming students will be automatically enrolled to "Master in Web and Data Science". If your application interface still says Master in Web Science, then it's due to the ongoing adaptation and will soon change to its correct naming.
