Course content

This is an interdisciplinary, research-based programme offered by a consortium of five European universities: University of Leipzig, University of Vienna, University of Wroclaw, University of Roskilde and LSE.

This is a wide-ranging academic programme which combines global history, international studies, area studies, and social science approaches to the study of globalisation processes. You will spend one of the two years of the programme at one of the partner institutes.

Courses consider the origin and outcomes of distinct patterns of economic growth in various time and parts of the world. The programme also seeks to explain how and when some economies diverged from the path taken by industrialising and industrialised countries, while the growth performance of others was more erratic, and why problems of poverty, inequality, instability and violence still characterise large parts of the world.
