MA in Modern European Studies (European History, Politics, and Society)


Applications for MA Program:
Regular Deadline for Fall Admission: March 15, 2017
Applications will be considered until May 1st on a space-available basis.

Housed within the European Institute, Columbia’s M.A. program in Modern European Studies offers unique opportunities for students to deepen their understanding of European history, politics, and society while expanding their research, writing, and presentation skills.

Adam Tooze, Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Professor of History, is the program’s Director, and Director of the European Institute, and Tsveta Petrova, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Political Science, is the program’s Faculty Advisor.

The program gives students the opportunity to work with Columbia’s renowned faculty and to design their own rigorous, interdisciplinary programs of study. Students can choose any of Columbia’s courses related to modern European topics in the Arts and Sciences, the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), and the Law School.

The program can be completed in 12 months but part-time study is also possible.

A two-semester MA colloquium introduces students to topics and issues in the study of Europe and provides intensive research training. Students then write a substantial master’s thesis based on original research.

Students enjoy one-on-one academic and career advising from the program’s Faculty Adviser.

The European Institute offers financial support to its students, including tuition assistance to qualified students, competitive conference grants and grants to conduct research in Europe, and employment opportunities to select students.

The degree is designed for students going on to graduate and professional schools and to careers in business, government, law, and the nonprofit sector.

Please note that applicants interested in pursuing the study of earlier periods of Europe may want to consider the MA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. More information here.
