Master of Arts in Global and Comparative History
The Global and Comparative History Master’s Degree Program at Rutgers—The State University of New Jersey is especially for students looking for a “bridge” M.A. program to increase their prospects for future admission to leading Ph.D. programs in the field, as well as for current and prospective teachers facing the challenge of offering courses in world history and cultures at the middle and secondary school levels. Centered at the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University, this master’s degree draws on the strength of a faculty with nearly twenty members working on various aspects of global history who have made major scholarly contributions to the field. Among the areas of faculty specialization are Indian, African, Asian, Latin American, and Middle Eastern history.
Global and comparative history courses have long formed a significant part of the History undergraduate major at Rutgers, and have flourished as a minor field within the Ph.D. program. M.A. students will benefit greatly from access to the resources of a major public research institution.
The program offers courses that focus on key culture areas in world historical perspective, major themes and processes in global history, and trans-continental and trans-national interactions and globalizing influences over time. Course offerings include: - Africa in World History - Islam: A Global Civilization - Colloquium in Global History - Modern World Cities - African-Asian Century - Gender in Latin America - Slavery in the Caribbean - Ancient Warfare & Diplomacy
