This masters programme trains students to explore the international and global forces and processes that have created our world today.In the two year programme students learn to analyse large-scale historical processes, pursue empirical research and write their own comparative, international and transnational histories.
In the first year students are introduced to different theoretical, methodological and historiographical approaches to writing international and global history. They are equipped with a solid knowledge of key themes in international history, introduced to the history of international organisations and offered special insights into Scandinavias international place and role.
In the second year, students are provided with several options. Through different combinations of courses offered at the Department of History and Area Studies they may specialise in different geographical regions or other aspects of international history such as imperialism and decolonisation, the world wars or European integration. They also have an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge they have obtained through an internship or they may study abroad. In their last semester students write their masters thesis under regular and supportive one-to-one supervision.
The programme serves as a firm foundation for further academic pursuits but it also provides excellent training for related careers in government, journalism, libraries and museums as well as in NGOs and international organisations.

First semester: Understanding International and Global History (10 ECTS), International Organizations and Institutions in History (10 ECTS), Topic in Early International and Global History (10 ECTS).
