The Global History program is designed for talented students who are exceptionally motivated to develop their skills in the field of historical research.

In the Global History program you will learn to investigate the dynamics and long-term developments of the global interconnection of goods, ideas and people, and the role of power, religion and affects in such constellations. In research intensive courses you will collaborate with renowned researchers and research groups in the fields of migration studies, in the history of capitalism, knowledge and religion, material culture and heritage, emotions and senses, and environmental humanities.

The Master has an interdisciplinary perspective that includes concepts and methodologies from the social sciences, philosophy and law. It offers students the possibility to explore and train skills in digital analysis and reflect on the possibilities of the emerging digital humanities techniques, and e-Humanities approaches. We offer a thorough training program, with individual guidance by excellent and committed supervisors. You are encouraged to make use of the staff's intensive networks with heritage and research institutions, governmental organizations and NGO's (e.g. UNESCO), and business partners (banks, creative industries), to set up research projects embedded in society.

instruction modes
The Research Master's is an intensive research oriented program. Due to its small scale you will work closely together with the professors. Most courses will be taught in tutorials, some as lectures. You will complete your two-year program by writing a Master's thesis on a research project that you will carry out yourself.
objectives
The research master's degree will enable you to work as an independent researcher. In the academic world, both at home and abroad, it is seen as a possible step towards a doctoral study. But you can also embark on a career at a research institute outside of the academic setting, for instance as a history teacher, a journalist, or text writer, a heritage expert, an advisor for the government or for NGO's.
