About the Double Degree

The MA in European History, Politics, and Society from Columbia and the MSc in Culture and Conflict in a Global Europe from LSE jointly offer the European Politics, Conflict and Culture programme to students. This double degree programme delves into the origin and dynamics of modern European politics, economies, societies, and cultures, and examines their role in shaping conflicts in the global context. As an MSc student, you will study how globalisation shapes Europe as a political and cultural space and explore its role as a global actor.

The programme offers a vast array of courses in the social sciences and humanities, hosted by the European Institutes of the LSE and Columbia University.

You will develop your research, policy analysis, writing, and presentation skills, using methods from political science, international relations, history, sociology, philosophy and economics. You will have access to mentorship from experienced faculty in the UK and the US.
