The MA in Global History deals with the history of global interconnections and developments. Instead of simply conveying a macro-perspective on global change, students are encouraged to acquire in-depth knowledge about the cultural and social history of a single region which they will learn to situate through comparisons, and through a focus on interactions and exchange – in the context of global structures and transformations.
The MA Global History is a two-year graduate program. Students work with preeminent historians at the Freie Universität Berlin and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The program is based on close cooperation between the History and Area Studies departments including specialists of virtually all parts of the world, and enables students to specialize in the region of their interest.
