specialisaties

specialisatie Global History and International Relations

Global History and International Relations focuses on cutting-edge questions related to historical processes of globalisation, international relations and cultural encounters.

Nation-states generate various perspectives on the course of history, influencing the way they enter the world's political stage. In the master specialisation Global History and International Relations at Erasmus University Rotterdam you will investigate how and why people, regions, nations, or empires behave like they do. By studying the development of different global histories you learn to understand how history is often a cultural, religious, social or political narrative created to legitimize nation states, conflicts, cultural identities or world domination.

You will go to archives, museums and libraries, looking for journals, letters or novels and protest pamphlets to build your cases. Based on such sources, you will learn how the public sphere has changed. Furthermore, you will learn how you can use interesting sources such as paper archives, digital databases, oral history and political documents for your own research.

Global History and International Relations will jumpstart your career as a historian or researcher. But you can also work as a manager or researcher at cultural institutions, government authorities, consultancies, archives or in the media.

specialisatie Global Markets, Local Creativities (GLOCAL)

In this two-year, international Master, you study how local places and actors generate local competitiveness under global markets conditions.

Global Markets, Local Creativities (GLOCAL) is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme taught over 2 years by a consortium of 7 universities. GLOCAL is an integrated, international programme interrogating the history, theory, institutions and cultures of global capitalism. It is a combination of social sciences and humanities approaches. You will receive a theoretical grounding in international business and the global economy, and will be encouraged to think critically about the respective roles of individuals, firms, cities, regions, nations and supra-national bodies in determining and shaping the world in which we live.

The programme is ideal for students with backgrounds in social science, arts and humanities, business management, and liberal arts, as it stresses a qualitative-historical, holistic analysis of globalisation and localisation processes at the intersection of history, economics, business and cultural studies.

Graduates receive three diplomas – one from each of the institutions at which they have studied.

specialisatie Applied History

Are you interested in history but looking for a more practical master, focused on the labour market? Then the Applied History is the programme for you!

In the master specialisation Applied History at Erasmus University Rotterdam you will learn how we need to use a long-term perspective if we want to come with sustainable solutions for global problems. You will also discover that nation states often use history to create narratives and identities that influence our daily lives. By studying the development of different global histories, you learn to understand how history is often a cultural, religious, social or political narrative created to legitimize nation states, conflicts, cultural identities or world domination.

Applied History offers you the opportunity to take a longer internship and solve a concrete problem in Applied History in your final project. Instead of writing a traditional research paper as your thesis, you can also write a documentary script or an outline for an exhibition.

The interdisciplinary collaboration (where possible) with Arts and Culture and Media Studies makes you a desirable employee for a variety of organisations. Whether you want to become a journalist, ambition a career in politics, or as a scientist, this master will prepare you thoroughly.
