Transnational, International, and Global History

The graduate program in Transnational, International, and Global History (TIG) offers the opportunity to study historical subjects that transcend politically or culturally bounded territories and connects various regions of the world to one another. Students in TIG can pursue studies on a range of topics that focus on the interconnectedness of states, organizations, and networks, as well as the international proliferation of ideas, beliefs, and practices. They can also pursue studies in multinational or multiethnic regions of the world, such as the Mediterranean, Indian Ocean, Central Asia, the Pacific Rim, or the Atlantic World. In the initial stage of study, students in TIG complete coursework in the methods, challenges, and historiography of transnational history, as well as in at least two regional historical fields. In consultation with advisors, students will then develop, research, and write a dissertation.
