Carleton seniors and graduates are invited to apply to a two-year Master’s Program, jointly awarded by Columbia University and the London School of Economics in International and World History.
The curriculum includes a two-year sequence of reading and research seminars, interdisciplinary electives, and foreign language training. At the heart of the program is a two-year dissertation, an original scholarly work based on empirical research and analysis.
Students spend the first year in New York and the second year in London, receiving degrees from both institutions. Graduates are prepared for careers in government, journalism, think tanks, NGOs, and academia.
