About the MA programme

This master's programme at Columbia and LSE will ask students to explore our world by studying the forces that have been remaking it: migration, trade, technological revolutions, epidemic disease, environmental change, wars and diplomacy. Working with preeminent historians in the field, students will analyse large-scale historical processes, pursue empirical research, and produce their own comparative and cross-cultural histories.

This double degree draws on the faculties of two of the world's leading centres of international affairs, which have the expertise and commitment to provide the training and skills needed. It offers close contact in seminars and colloquia with mentors in different intellectual and cultural settings in two global cities.

Compulsory language requirement

There is no language requirement for entry into the programme. However, in order to graduate from the programme, students must fulfil a language requirement in one of four different ways:
◾ by taking two years of language training while at Columbia and LSE
◾ by taking and passing two translation exams. (Both translation exams must be taken at Columbia)
◾ by taking and passing one translation exam and studying a language for one year, either at Columbia or at LSE
◾ by taking and passing an intensive summer language course (that equals the same number of credits as a year-long language course) combined with either a passed language exam or an additional year of language classes

Students have the choice between focusing on a single language or splitting the requirement between two different languages. It is possible to continue further study of a language after a student has passed the translation exam in that language.

Graduate destinations

While many dual degree students go on to undertake PhDs, some choose to apply the insights gained to a career outside of academia, including journalism, public policy, non-profit, or the private sector.

About the MSc programme

Sciences Po and LSE have come together to offer high-achieving undergraduate students a joint curriculum in European studies. Bilingual (French and English), and spanning a wide range of disciplines, this very select programme is delivered by renowned EU specialists, many with practical experience of policymaking.

The programme focuses on the history, politics, policies and institutions of the European Union; on the ideas which underpin the European project; and on the political, economic and social challenges facing Europe. Courses are multidisciplinary and you will choose options from international relations, history, economics, law, philosophy and political science, all with a strongly European focus.

Your first year is spent at Sciences Po, in the Master Affaires Européennes; the second year takes place within the European Institute at LSE studying either MSc Global Europe: Culture and Conflict, MSc Political Economy of Europe or MSc EU Politics.

Graduate destinations

Graduates of the programme pursue successful careers in politics, journalism, diplomacy, business, academia, consultancy, the EU institutions, national administrations and in the international institutions.

This is an interdisciplinary, research-based programme. It is offered by a consortium of five European universities: University of Leipzig, University of Vienna, University of Wroclaw, University of Roskilde and LSE, where it is based in the Department of Economic History.

This wide-ranging academic programme combines global history, international studies, area studies, and social science approaches to the study of globalisation processes. You will spend one of the two years of the programme at one of the partner institutes.

Courses consider the origin and outcomes of distinct patterns of economic growth in various time and parts of the world. The programme also seeks to explain how and when some economies diverged from the path taken by industrialising and industrialised countries, while the growth performance of others was more erratic, and why problems of poverty, inequality, instability and violence still characterise large parts of the world.

The programme is aimed at students with a first degree in social sciences and humanities with an interest in issues of globalisation. Minimum entry requirements are a BA degree (or recognised equivalent from an accredited institution), sufficient undergraduate training to do graduate work in the chosen field, excellent written and oral command of English and at least basic German knowledge.

Students study for two years, one year each at two of the partner institutes, and applicants wishing to study at LSE for either their first or second year will be required to take the MSc Global History, based in the Department of Economic History.

Applications will be handled by the University of Leipzig and full details can be found at http://www.uni-leipzig.de/zhs/erasmus_mundus

About the MSc programme

This programme is aimed at those looking for a taught graduate programme in history in an international context. It caters for a wide variety of students, including those who have studied history at an undergraduate level and those who are making the transition from related subjects such as political science, modern languages, economics, law or journalism.

You will take at least two specialised history options, choosing from options that span the globe geographically and range chronologically from the Renaissance to the end of the Cold War. You will also have the opportunity to take a relevant course offered by another LSE department, and to prepare a detailed, research-based 10,000 word dissertation. Teaching is research-led and delivered by those who are at the cutting edge of the field.

Graduate destinations

Students develop highly transferable skills valued by employers and go on to work in the foreign service, the EU, political think tanks, risk assessment, journalism, the NGO sector, or stay on to take a research degree.
