The world is more interconnected than ever. Join leading historians to study how we arrived here. An innovative curriculum includes a two-year sequence of reading and research seminars, interdisciplinary electives, and intensive foreign language training, providing the students with new frameworks and tools to understand the transnational forces that have shaped our world: migration, trade, war, technology, epidemic disease, and environmental change. At the heart of the program is the two-year dissertation, an original scholarly work based on empirical research and analysis.
Students spend the first year in New York and the second year in London and receive degrees from both institutions. Immersed in the vibrant intellectual communities of two of the world’s great cities, graduates are prepared for careers in government, journalism, think tanks, NGOs, and academia.
