Level
Bachelor

Dive into the thrilling history of Europe and its role on the world stage, studying in three of the most exciting cities of Europe: Rome, Utrecht and Berlin! The three combined courses, designed by three excellent European universities, will provide an exciting overview of the history and workings of Europe. Emerge yourself in Europe’s history and culture and visit many of the tangible remains during excursions.

A special track consists out of a number of courses, which have been successfully combined in the past. Registering for a special track is more convenient than for each course separately and it also often results in a substantial discount.

During this course we will trace the making of Europe, from its most ancient roots to its most current affairs. This will be done through a multidisciplinary approach in which political, economic and societal perspectives will be offered. You will come to understand these historical developments from both a national and an international viewpoint. The programme will offer you the opportunity to explore a broad range of topics starting with the history of the Roman empire, and continuing to the Medieval Era and the Renaissance. The second part of the special track stretches from the Dutch "Golden Age" to the end of the 19th century and includes the topics of (Early) Modern European state-building, the rise of the bourgeoisie and the genesis of the modern welfare state. In the final part of the course you will be introduced to major developments of the 20th century: the First and Second World Wars, the Interbellum and the Cold War, the rise and fall of totalitarian regimes, and the birth of modern international relations and European integration.

The topics addressed in Rome, Utrecht and Berlin will have strong ties to the specific locations, but at the same time the broader European historical developments will be kept in focus during all lectures and excursions.
