The international research-based Master's programme “Global Studies – A European Perspective” combines perspectives, methods and theories developed in history, the social sciences, cultural as well as area studies and economics to investigate phenomena of global connectedness. We do not believe that globalisation exists as an
objectively given, material reality which can be measured, but rather that we have to understand the phenomena described as globalisation as a bundle of political, economic, social and cultural projects to manage increasing transnational and transcontinental connectedness (the so-called global condition). Therefore, the multinational
classroom of the programme and the cross-over of contributions from various disciplines and universities dealing either with some of these projects or/and with their conflicts and resulting entanglements offer substantial added value to the study of processes of globalisation.
The Master’s course is offered by a Consortium of five European universities: University of Leipzig (Germany), London School of Economics and Political Science (UK), University of Roskilde (Denmark), University of Vienna (Austria) and University of
Wroclaw (Poland) and six Non-European universities: Dalhousie University (Canada), Fudan University (China), Jawaharlal Nehru University (India), Macquarie University (Australia), University of California at Santa Barbara (USA), University of Stellenbosch
(South Africa). The course is modularised and integrated: It can be studied for one year at one of the European partner institutions, and for the second year at a different European university. European students have the opportunity to spend one semester at one of our
Non-European partner universities. Credit recognition and transfer is based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Depending on their mobility track graduates are awarded a joint or a double degree.
The Master’s Course ‘Global Studies’ aims at students with a first degree in social sciences and humanities with an interest in issues of globalisation. The minimum application requirements are a BA degree or a recognised equivalent from an accredited institution, sufficient undergraduate training to do graduate work in the chosen field, excellent written and oral command of English.
A filled in application form (to be found on www.globalstudies-masters.info), a copy of a BA-Degree (or equivalent) in the social sciences or humanities, a statement of purpose, curriculum vita, two references and language certificates.
