Drawing on insights from the social sciences, political theory and cultural analysis, you will learn to describe both the broad outlines and the unique aspects of historical events from the early modern period to the present. Studying topics such as international relations, migration, trade and cultural heritage, will provide a better understanding of the present as well.The History master offers the following specialisations:* Applied History: learn in a practical way how we need to use a long-term perspective if we want to come with sustainable solutions for global problems. * Global History and International Relations: approaches modern history from multiple angles, examining social, economic, political and cultural themes in the past – and connecting them with contemporary developments.
