COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY and THE LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS
Columbia University and the London School of Economics and Political Science are launching a new dual degree program leading to the awards of the MA in European History, Politics, and Society from Columbia and the MSc in Culture and Conflict in a Global Europe from LSE.
The program will accept applications until March 16, 2023 and will welcome its first cohort of students in New York in September 2023.
The dual-degree program will invite students to engage with Europe's historical and current developments in a multi- and inter-disciplinary manner by choosing classes from across different disciplines to match their interests and career goals.
Students will be introduced to some of the long-standing debates over the origin and dynamics of contemporary European politics, economies, societies, and cultures. They will gain transferable skills – analytical, writing, and presentation competences – acquired and practiced through original research in the humanities and/or social sciences.
The program can be completed in two years. Students will spend the first year at Columbia University in New York and the second year at the LSE in London. For their final project, to be completed in the second year of the program at the LSE, students will be able to choose between writing a dissertation based on original research or participating in an applied policy project.
