In the research MA Cities, Migration and Global Interdependence at Leiden University you will study processes of migration, urbanisation, economic development and the increase in global interaction.

You will be part of a Research Master's programme in which you will focus on processes that are subjects of heated current societal and political debates. You will study them from a comparative and historical perspective (covering the period 1350 until 2000) and place them in the wider frameworks of the development of trade networks, the emergence of multinationals, economic growth and stagnation, and world unification.

Leiden University has a long tradition of studying migration and ethnicity and you will benefit from the expertise of a large team of enthusiastic and very diverse teachers. You will learn to understand and contribute to current debates about migration, urbanisation, globalisation, economic growth and inequality from a historical and comparative perspective. You will also analyse urban and state institutions and their effects on inclusion and exclusion, urban crime and criminal behaviour, and the development of freedoms and un-freedoms (including slavery).

  • Leiden University's History department was recently ranked 19th in the QS worldwide ranking.

Liesbeth Rosen Jacobson
Liesbeth Rosen Jacobson - Student Testimonial Migration and Global Interdependence (research)

I have chosen to follow the two-year research master's in 'Migration and global interdependence' (currently called Cities, Migration and Global Interdependence) after my bachelor'sin Social History, because it felt like a logical continuation of my study.

I had written a bachelor's thesis on the migration of Huguenot book sellers and printers in Amsterdam and wanted to extend my knowledge on migration and integration in past times...
As a student, you are strongly encouraged to follow your own interests and the broad composition of the programme helps you to do so.

A large elaboration
I am now doing a PhD project in the same research group as where I did the research master's programme. The thorough tutorials and the master's thesis prepared the way to write my own proposal for a PhD position, a process in which my thesis supervisor helped a lot. My PhD project is essentially an elaboration of my research master's thesis. That means I can still use in my PhD project material I came across during the process of writing my thesis.

Gijs Dreijer
Gijs Dreijer - Student Testimonial Migration and Global Interdependence (research) Leiden University

I started this Research MA programme because it gave me the opportunity to conduct my own research.

This particular specialisation is also attractive because it focuses on interesting contemporary issues, such as migration, economic crises and the welfare state – all subjects that interest me very much.

Challenges and solutions
A broad historical and interdisciplinary view of the challenges facing us today and tomorrow can give us a better understanding of the world, and can also help us come up with good solutions for difficult issues...
After my studies at Leiden University, I will probably look for a PhD position or another semi-academic career. The wide range of skills that I have learned in this programme will certainly help me pursue a career in research. Not only that, these skills would also certainly be useful in careers in government and international relations.
