The Master’s course in “Global Studies – A European Perspective” trains students to look at processes of globalisation in different academic ways. It combines approaches from Global History and International Studies. Cultural Studies, Area Studies, Social Sciences and other disciplines contribute to a wide-ranging academic programme.
