Cultural-historical approach to globalisation
The Master in Cultural History of Modern Europe at Utrecht University stands out through its use of a cultural-historical perspective in relation to globalisation. In the Netherlands, no other programmes in cultural history are available, and comparable international programmes concentrate either on cultural history in national contexts or on a non-historical approach to globalisation. Our programme further distinguishes itself through its diachronic approach and firm methodological grounding in history as well as integrating public history into the programme content.
Internships and studying abroad
The programme offers you a choice of (international) internships and the opportunity to study abroad. These options will help you begin building an international network of connections in the field and/or gain workplace experience before you begin your career, which can be a vital addition to your CV to differentiate you from other job applicants. You will also receive personal help and supervision to help you succeed in your studies.
