UNDERSTAND THE PRESENT, PREPARE THE FUTURE
The International History Department at the Graduate Institute is uniquely positioned to monitor and examine the making of international policies and the global history that stands behind them. The master and PhD programmes explore the modern world through these transnational histories, taking into account multiple perspectives.
The International History Department pursues the study of history with an eye on innovation. The Department welcomes exploration of international history issues from a variety of perspectives and through the use of new methodologies. We innovate in the ways we explore and intertwine themes and time-periods, spaces and actors though we are concerned as ever with a rigorous historical analysis of the past, our own distinctive way to make sense of the present and to reflect on the future.
