News from Apr 05, 2016

The Master of Arts in Global History is dedicated to exploring the various trajectories of cross-border entanglements around the globe. Unlike programs that treat global history as an extension of imperial or economic history, our approach emphasizes the entanglements between specific regions and global structures. By focusing on comparisons, connections, and processes of global integration, the program helps students to understand the forces that have continuously shaped and restructured the world.

Global history is one of the most innovative and productive fields of scholarly inquiry today, and challenges us to think about history and its methodologies in new ways. It acknowledges a broad variety of different perspectives and aims to arrive at a non-Eurocentric reading of the global past.

Applications for the 2016/17 academic year are accepted April 15 to May 31, 2016.
