Program description

Make sense of now: in the swirl of changes in science, technology, the media, politics, and ideologies, spot the historical trends in international relations and shape your own professional future.

Get a fix on the past, and help shape the future: take a multi-disciplinary, globally oriented approach to political, social, and economic trends. Sharpen your analytical and critical skills, and get the tools you need to do cutting-edge research with literature and original sources.

Intern in museums, archives, or other institutions, or do fieldwork in non-Western societies, and get a start on a policy-oriented career in government, business, the media, or education, or on an academic career.

Erasmus is a top-ranked institution in an international, forward-looking, multi-cultural city. The programme is taught by renowned faculty who give you the individual attention you need as you contribute to our understanding of a fast-changing world.

Master Thesis Class History of Society; Political Economy of Development in Asia; Non-western Prospectives on World History; Japan: From Isolationist to World Power; Early Modern Political Thought; New Nation States and their Position in Europe: Germany from the 1860s.
