About

In this Humanities Research - Global History MA programme from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam you’ll learn to investigate the dynamics and long-term developments of the global interconnection of goods, ideas and people, and the role of power, religion and affects in such constellations.

Overview

The Humanities Research - Global History MA programme from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam programme has an interdisciplinary perspective that includes concepts and methodologies from the social and environmental sciences, philosophy and law. It also offers you the opportunity to develop skills in digital analysis and reflect on the possibilities of emerging digital humanities techniques and e-Humanities approaches.

The Global History track focuses on the study of politics, culture, religion, economy and daily life from a historical, theoretical and 'new' world history perspective. In a globalised and highly digital world, long-term perspectives are needed to analyse the complex phenomena of our time: perspectives sensitive to deep-rooted mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion. 

Disciplinary boundaries need to be questioned and challenged, and new methods explored. In order to rise to these challenges, we need researchers who are trained in finding and interpreting compelling source material, in critical reflection, and in detailed reporting. This track will give you these skills and more. You’ll develop a critical attitude and learn to arrive at original lines of questioning based on profound knowledge of your research subject. You’ll develop your own, unique, expert knowledge, enabling you to start a successful research career.

Pursue an academic career

After graduating in the Humanities Research Master’s programme, you’ll be well placed to work as an independent researcher. You’ll have the skills needed to pursue a PhD within academia, and we’ll guide you in writing a research proposal for a PhD project. In recent years, many of our alumni have been awarded PhD grants in the Netherlands and abroad.
