Understand today's world by studying the past! History and International Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
How has democracy become a global standard while other types of government are considered 'deviations'? How did decolonization influence the relationship between Europe and Asia? What are the historical origins of global inequality and climate change? History and International Studies is an excellent choice for students interested in the historical origins of our global society. The programme offers a combination of history courses, modern language units and research skills from the fields of global history and international relations. It is taught by a highly motivated staff, strongly committed to teaching excellence and the learning experience of their students.

Courses discuss the history of Europe and the world from antiquity to the present. Students also choose electives, organized around different themes such as Politics & Economy; Migration & Ethnicity; Culture & Religion or Heritage & Memory. In addition, students can take courses in modern languages, learn about different approaches from the fields of international relations and global history and are trained in academic skills. In year 3, students can also study a semester abroad, take an internship or choose a minor.
