Apply online now to the research-orientated Dual MA/MSc in International and World History. Over the course of the two-year program, students work with preeminent historians at Columbia University and the London School of Economics (LSE) in two global cities (New York/London) to explore the forces that shaped and continue to remake our world: migration, trade, technology, religion, epidemic disease, the environment, war, interventions and diplomacy.
At the heart of the program, the two-year dissertation component of the Dual Masterís Degree comprises a sequence of three supporting core courses taken at Columbia (first year) and LSE (second year) as well as a large range of electives that allow for specialization. At the end of the two years, students produce an original 15,000-word dissertation based on their own detailed empirical research and analysis, much of which occurs during their location research during the summer between Columbia and LSE. They acquire an understanding of the conceptual possibilities and problems associated with international and world history, practical methodological training in the use of archives, oral history, and professional guidance on the presentation and dissemination of their findings.
Deadline: March 1. Apply here: https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=COL-GAS through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS).
