A Unique Programme
Situated in the heart of international Geneva, the International History and Politics Department is ideallly positioned to monitor and examine the making of international policies and the global history that stands behind them.
International Geneva is a hub of constant activity for national and international, public and private actors. Here, peace agreements are signed, international IT protocols are negotiated, environmental advocacy, public health policies, financial, economic, conflict and security issues are imagined, debated, and enforced. This has been the case for over a century, and International Geneva continues to actively shape the future.
The MA and PhD Programs in International History and Politics examine the complex challenges of the 21st century. We do so by constantly questioning conventional wisdom and by taking into account a multiplicity of national, transnational and global actors and perspectives. Our wide-ranging and constantly evolving curriculum is exceptionally strong in the areas of politics, development, conflict and security, environment, humanitarianism, commerce and finance, health and culture.
