Historical Studies

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Committee on Historical Studies offers interdisciplinary graduate training in both history and one of The New School for Social Research fields of study (Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, and Sociology). The program complements the Graduate Faculty's established strengths: its critical approach to social and cultural theory and reality, and its systematic empirical analysis. Historical Studies trains social scientists to place contemporary analyses in the context of long-term changes in economic, social, and political structures, and to use historical materials as evidence in the development and elaboration of social science theory.
