MA Global Studies: A European Perspective


Course Description

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
