Overview

Overview

Over the course of the two-year International and World History program offered by Columbia University, students work with preeminent historians at both institutions to explore the transnational forces that have shaped and continue to remake our world: migration, trade, technology, religion, epidemic disease, the environment, diplomacy, and war. This research-orientated program offers an opportunity to explore these ideas and connects vibrant intellectual communities in two global cities: London and New York. 

While many graduates go on to undertake PhDs, the MA/MSc in International and World History also offers a launching pad for careers in many other fields, including, but not limited to, government, journalism, NGOs, and international organizations.
