International Curriculum of Corso di Laurea Magistrale in Scienze della Storia e del Documento
Coordinator: Prof. Enrico Acciai


The M.A. in European History (MEH) is a two-year international programme with a focus on European history in a comparative and global perspective, offered by a consortium of prestigious Universities based in  European capitals. It is the first M.A. programme in history to bring together a truly multinational, Europe-wide collaboration of high-profile partner universities.

Students will develop their ability to understand historical problems by using primary sources in various languages. They could get a Double Degree.

 MEH is aptly suited for both European and non-European students interested in pursuing careers in international organizations. It cultivates research, writing, and analytical skills that can be applied to a broad range of careers, e.g. in education, journalism, administration, diplomacy and the cultural sector. The programme will be an excellent preparation for those wishing to complete a PhD in History.
