International Master's Programmes

The Department of Geographical and Historical Studies offers two international, multi-disciplinary Master's Degree Programmes.

Border Crossings: Global and Local Societies in Transition

The Border Studies programme offers engagement with a growing field of importance and global interest – borders. The programme gives graduates the skills to navigate the increasing debate on national and European identities, mobilities and migration, multi-culturalism and citizenship, and cross-border co-operation, especially along the EU's external borders.

The programme offers students from a variety of academic backgrounds a broader and deeper understanding of borders and bordering processes in society. The programme provides students with an excellent opportunity to gain a better understanding of diverse societies and cultures in a multi-national educational environment, while carrying out research for a Master's degree in one of three majors: human geography, sosiology, or social and public policy.
