Since the 1500s, the world has seen an ever-increasing pace in the circulation of people, goods and ideas. In the MA specialization Global History and International Studies you will study the historic roots of today’s connected world. You will develop a long-term perspective on the unequal distribution of wealth and power across the globe, the social impact of environmental change and natural disasters, the enduring legacies of slavery, colonialism and decolonization, and the transnational processes of the formation of political, social, cultural and religious identities.
