What will I learn?

In this Masters in Global History you will study connections between different parts of the world and draw comparisons across time, space and cultures. It is designed to strengthen your skills as an independent researcher and prepare you for a professional career in an increasingly globalised environment. A major quality of this programme stems from its collaboration with local archives, museums and libraries, allowing you to combine historical theory and practice with hands-on learning.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • This programme offers a unique social history approach to the study of global history, with a strong focus on people and societies in the Global South.
  • You can draw on the expertise of world leading academics in a wide range of themes, including empire, migration, slavery, conflict and global inequalities.
  • You will have the option to undertake interdisciplinary study, complementing historical research with, for example, the study of languages, religions or literature.

Glasgow provides a unique setting to develop your research skills in global history, as the city is home to many internationally important historical collections.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The analytical and research skills you will have gained by the end of this programme set you up for many different positions in the private and public sector, including careers in business, government, cultural heritage, media and education.

You will also be well qualified to proceed to study for a PhD in history or a related field.
