HSE St Petersburg invites domestic and international applicants to its new two-year, English-language MA ‘Global and Regional History’. Explore the vibrant field of global history through a regional focus on Russian, former Soviet, and Eurasian spaces, and an interdisciplinary unity of history and anthropology. The program’s core seminars in theory and methodology are complemented by a broad array of regional courses from the history of St Petersburg to that of personality cults of the 20th century, the Cold War, imperial crossroads in northern Eurasia, the Caucasus, Central, and Eastern Europe, the Arctic as well as on Russian/Soviet links with Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The program draws on the proximity and wealth of archives and museum collections of St Petersburg and the diversity of its rich environs. Its students benefit from the ease of travel to Moscow, Finland, the Baltics, and multiple regional locations within Russia. Full tuition waiver for up to 20 places for international and domestic students.

We are an energetic and friendly program, innovative and intellectually inspiring, and proud of making everyone part of a community that extends well beyond the department of history. In the time of Covid-19 we have mastered a rigorous online seminar format and amiable and close cohort interaction, which we nonetheless will be happy to turn back offline, circumstances permitting. Global history is one of the most exciting subjects to study at university today, and St Petersburg is unmatched as a place to study just as somewhere to be. We encourage strong applicants with undergraduate degrees in history and anthropology, Russian, East European, and Eurasian studies as well as other backgrounds for whom history and related disciplines are new subjects. This M.A. is English-taught yet including some Russian-language electives and options for Russian language training. It provides skills for further academic study, including Ph.D., as well as non-academic careers.
