This new, exciting program provides a select group of undergraduates the opportunity to pursue an integrated, consecutive 5-year dual-degree BA/MA between JHU and Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) that will lead to the MA in World History from UPF. JHU students will spend either the Fall or Spring of their Junior Year at UPF earning credits toward their UPF MA requirements. They will receive their Hopkins BA at the end of 4 years and then pursue the UPF MA degree in their fifth year of study.
One of Spain’s most dynamic universities and one of Europe’s top research institutions in the humanities and social sciences, UPF boasts an excellent Humanities Department (including History), with special strengths in world, global, and transnational history. Situated in the heart of Barcelona, one of Southern Europe’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities, housed in a mix of historic buildings and state of the art facilities, UPF offers students rigorous training in the methodologies and approaches essential for the in-depth study of world history.
