The MA/MSc program in International and World History seeks talented applicants for its Fall 2015 entry. This unique two-year program offers students an opportunity to work with preeminent historians at Columbia University and the London School of Economics to explore transnational forces that have shaped and continue to remake our world: migration, trade, war, technology, epidemic disease, and environmental change. The innovative curriculum includes a two-year sequence of reading and research seminars, interdisciplinary electives, and intensive foreign language training, providing the students with new frameworks and tools to understand our past. At the heart of the program is the two-year dissertation, an original scholarly work based on empirical research and analysis.
Students spend the first year in New York and the second year in London and receive degrees from both institutions. Immersed in the vibrant intellectual communities of two of the world’s greatest cities, graduates develop life-long contacts on both sides of the Atlantic, using Columbia and LSE as launching pads for a wide range of careers in government, journalism, think tanks, NGOs, and academia.
The program offers summer research fellowships and financial aid opportunities.
*Please note, students applying for the FLAS fellowship must notify the program via email and submit their applications by February 20, 2015 for early review. Further details can be found on our website.
