Global History and International Relations

Inhoud van de studie

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. You will look at international relations in a historical context using approaches from social science, political theory and cultural analysis.

Understanding the past is key in understanding the present. In this programme, you approach modern history from multiple angles, examining social, political and cultural themes in the past – and connecting them with contemporary developments.

In this master programme, you study historical processes in a comparative and interdisciplinary manner. Drawing on insights from the social sciences, political theory and cultural analysis, you will learn to describe both the broad outlines and the unique aspects of historical events from the early modern period to the present. Studying topics such as international relations, migration, trade and cultural heritage, will provide a better understanding of the present as well.
