- This diverse programme at University College Dublin focuses on the comparative analysis of European history and students will develop the ability to understand historical problems in a comparative framework. The programme is taught in English, so that all partner universities offer some modules in English. It is also possible to take modules in the local language. This programme provides excellent preparation for students wishing to pursue a PhD in European history and equips students with a wide range of skills in the international jobs market.
- Many of European History alumni work in international business, foreign affairs and Dublin's vibrant tech sector, where a background in the global humanities is particularly valued. Other graduates work in senior positions across a diverse range of industries including education, the media, NGOs and the Arts, whilst some continue on to PhD research.
