The two-year Research Master's in History at Leiden University offers you the chance to determine a study based on your own particular interests and ambitions.

During your studies you will experience the riches and challenges of academia not only via frequent meetings with your tutor, but also during the seminars in which staff members and research master's students discuss one another's research findings and exchange scholarly views and insights.

You are encouraged to spend the third semester of your research master's abroad taking optional courses and conducting research for your thesis.

Selected students will also be able to participate in the Europaeum Vaclav Havel MA Programme, an initiative of Leiden University in cooperation with the Sorbonne (Paris) and Charles University in Prague which leads to a separate additional master certificate in European Society and Politics issued by the Europaeum Association of leading European Universities.

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

specialisaties

specialisatie Ancient History (research)



You will join a two-year Research Master's programme in which you will study a wide array of subjects including Roman social history, acculturation and romanisation theory, Graeco-Roman religion, and the rise of early Judaism. You will become adept in the study of documentary texts, in particular those of Greek inscriptions.

You will learn how to apply methodologies from various other disciplines to bring new perspectives to the topics you study and analyse and critique the latest academic theories in the field of Ancient History.

As an Ancient History research master's student you will be part of a lively, ambitious, and international community that includes students from a variety of disciplines such as history, classics and archaeology. Your lecturers have typically been the recipients of various prizes and research grants.

  • Leiden University's History department was recently ranked 20th in the QS worldwide ranking by subject.

specialisatie Colonial and Global History (research)



You will join a Research Master's programme in which you will explore how political, economic, cultural and religious contacts led to the development of regional identities and states - all in a highly stimulating and international academic environment.

You will gain an understanding of the importance of a comparative perspective for understanding transnational processes such as imperialism, colonialism, islamisation, modernisation and globalisation. Through intensive practical and in-depth training you will learn how to examine and analyse primary sources with the help of Leiden University's world-class academics.

During your studies you will have access to unique documentation centres and libraries specialising in Asia and Africa within easy reach of Leiden University – at the National Archives and the Royal Library in The Hague. You will also be part of an international cohort of students who have chosen Leiden University and the Colonial and Global History Research MA on the basis of the department's internationally acclaimed research and its Cosmopolis scholarship programme.

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

specialisatie Cities, Migration and Global Interdependence (research)



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.

specialisatie Europe 1000-1800 (research)



You will join a research Master's programme in which you will study areas of history not covered by other Dutch history departments, including British, Iberian and Central European history as well as the political and cultural history of the Netherlands. You will learn how to think comparatively about the transformations in politics, culture and religion that occurred during this era.

You will engage closely in current scholarly debates, honing your ability to analyse and critique the latest academic ideas and theories. The programme is taught by inspired academics currently engaged in large-scale research projects on issues directly related to the MA, including feuds and factions, the Burgundian nobility, war memories and identity formation.

During your studies you will also be able to benefit from easy access to the excellent library and archival resources available in Leiden and The Hague, where you can study many primary sources and secondary studies.

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

specialisatie History of Political Culture and National Identities (research)



You will be part of a research Master's programme that takes a broad, comparative approach to the study of the political and national identities of a number of European countries spanning the period 1800 to 2010. The programme takes an international perspective by looking at the relations between different European countries instead of the more usual nationalistic historiography.

You will examine the evolution of the political culture and national identities of countries such as the Netherlands, Great Britain, Germany or Russia – and how these countries influenced each other through 'cultural transfer': the adoption of examples from other countries and the inspiration they engender.

Your understanding of how national identities and political views have evolved will enable you to make a valuable contribution to the debates that continue to dominate both public and academic forums, including discussions about the EU, democracy and populism.
