International Bachelor History
Studying modern history and its impact on today's societies

Continuing master programmes for Bachelor International Bachelor History

The master History of Society at Erasmus University has topped the rankings for best history master in the Netherlands for the last couple of years. Next to the Dutch specialisation Cultuurgeschiedenis we offer the English specialisation Global History and International Relations.

Global History and International Relations 

The specialisation Global History and International Relations highlights the rise and fall of empires and the emergence of international relations. In addition it focuses on paradoxical processes of cultural homogenisation and increasing emphasis on cultural diversity in debates on national histories and heritage programmes. This specialisation teaches you to recognise and analyse global histories and local consequences; and the changing challenges of states, increasing interest in international relations and growing nationalism and the rising importance of cultural heritage and national histories from the early modern world to the world of today.

Global Markets, Local Creativities (GLOCAL)

In this two-year, international Master programme, you examine how local places (clusters, cities and regions) and local actors (entrepreneurs, firms and policymakers) generate local competitiveness under global market conditions. All students will spend their first semester in Glasgow and the second semester in Barcelona, and then choose between Rotterdam and Göttingen in the third semester.
