The Master’s programme History of Politics and Society provides you with a thorough understanding of the historical roots of the most important political and societal issues that politicians, journalists and policy makers are concerned with today.

You will study the historical development of democracy, civil society, the sustainability agenda, and economic inequality in an international comparative perspective. The programme focuses largely on 19th through 21st century topics and has an interdisciplinary approach: you will combine historical research with concepts and explanations derived from the social sciences.

This programme offers an English track and a Dutch track. The modules offered in these tracks are the same – only the language of instruction differs.

For students looking for an extra challenge, Utrecht University offers several interdisciplinary honours programmes.
