Students are invited to apply for the Dual MA/MSc Program in International and World History, a two-year program that provides the opportunity to study at both the London School of Economics and Columbia University and receive degrees from both institutions.

Students in the Program will work with preeminent historians to explore transnational forces that have shaped and continue to remake our world: migration, trade, war, technology, epidemic disease, and environmental change. The innovative curriculum includes a sequence of reading and research seminars, interdisciplinary electives, and intensive foreign language training, providing students with new frameworks and tools to understand our past. At the heart of the program is the two-year dissertation, an original scholarly work based on empirical research and analysis.
