The Georgetown-King’s Joint Master’s Degree in Global, International & Comparative History is a two-year programme involving one academic year of study at each institution. The degree offers students access to the combined talents of two-world class History departments, as well as the unrivalled research resources of Washington DC and London. King’s existing strengths in Modern and Early Modern British, Imperial, and continental European History complement Georgetown’s expertise in Middle Eastern, Russian & East European, East and South Asian, Latin American, African, US and Global Environmental History. This range of coverage provides students with an extraordinarily rich array of thematic, geographic, and cultural perspectives on the past. But Global History, as pursued in this joint master’s degree, is more than a roomy container for diverse interests. In both taught courses and their independent research, students will explore specific connections and rigorous comparisons that creatively link together various local and national histories.
