The M.A. Course in European History in the Capitals of Europe (MEH) at Tor Vergata University of Rome is based on the initiative of UNICA - Network of Universities from the Capitals of Europe.  

Visit the official programme website for more information


 It is a two-year international European History in the Capitals of Europe (MEH) programme at Tor Vergata University of Rome  with a focus on European history in comparative and global perspective, offered by a consortium of 10 universities in 9 European capitals. This is the first MA programme in history to bring together a truly multinational, Europe-wide collaboration of high-profile partner universities

Graduates of the MEH will be awarded an M.A. title with a double degree issued by the home university and the host full member partner university/universities attended by the student.


MEH is a unique, international programme aptly suited for students interested in pursuing careers in international organisations and foundations. The degree cultivates research, writing, and analytical skills that can be applied to a broad range of careers, e.g. in education, journalism, administration, diplomacy and the cultural sector.

Programme Structure

  • The programme focuses on historical processes and comparative analysis of European history. It will help students to develop their ability to understand historical problems in a comparative framework by using primary sources and foreign languages
  • English is the language of instruction and will be accepted at all partner universities, but they offer also lessons and seminars in other languages (e.g. language of the host university)
  • The MEH offers the opportunity to experience Europe from the perspective of multiple countries, their cultures and languages
