At LSE you can study this subject at the UK's most established and well known department devoted to International History. Traditionally the IH Department has pioneered the history of nation states, through global conflicts, supranational organisations and diplomacy. The latest approaches to the First world war, Second World, Cold War, US foreign policy, and European integration across the twentieth century can be studied here. But the Department also reflects how the discipline has evolved. Regional specialists also include international historians of the Middle East, South Asia, China, Africa, Caribbean and Latin America. And last but by no means least, the Department has developed a strong presence in the history of imperialism, colonialism and globalisation. Students of whatever area of intellectual interest, can also find an added edge to their studies by taking advantage of the broader intellectual environment provided by being the world's number two ranked social science institute. LSE is home to some of the most dynamic research centres in the world and a line-up, each year, of outside speakers unrivalled in influence. And all of this can be enjoyed on the most internationally diverse campus located at the centre of the world’s most cosmopolitan city.
