Dual Degree in Global and International History with King’s College London

King’s College London and Sciences Po have partnered to offer a joint two-year graduate programme in modern and global history. Students benefit from the combined strengths of the two faculties in modern political history, global and transnational approaches, and interdisciplinary dialogue with the social sciences and cultural theory. Studying in the heart of Europe’s two main global cities also gives them easy access to an extremely wide range of historical institutions and resources.

Students spend the first year of the programme at Sciences Po (English-language track available) and the second year at King’s College London.

Section #premiere-annee

Year 1 at Sciences Po

The first year in Paris includes a core course on modern historiographical trends, elective courses to develop specific skills (oral history, visual history, quantitative approaches, archival research), elective courses on specific themes in modern global history, and tutorials that help students design their own research topic.

Students may opt to take courses exclusively in English or they can combine courses in English and in French. They can take foreign-language classes or French-language classes to learn French or improve their command of the language. 

Prospective applicants can consult the range of courses available in the current academic year, in semester 1 and semester 2.  

Section #deuxieme-annee

Year 2 at King's College London

In the second year in London, students may choose a modern history pathway, giving access to all the courses of King’s Modern History MA, or a global history pathway, giving access to all the courses of King’s World History & Cultures MA.   

The final 15,000-word final research dissertation must be written in English.
