The Department of European and World History collaborates with an extensive network of partners – both within and outside the academic world. Our closest partners include the other departments in the School of History, Culture and Arts Studies and in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Turku, and other faculties and Finnish universities. We are also working in close collaboration with multidisciplinary networks and organisations with whom we promote the study of international history and its significance to the society.
The Department of European and World History investigates global history. The Department has a strong profile in the study of European societies and the history of global phenomena and interaction.
Our research approach is international and transnational by nature, and our strengths lie in a multi-perspective understanding of the processes of globalisation and of the interaction of Europe with the wider world. Furthermore, Finnish connections and activities abroad are also in the focus of our research.
Education in European and World History produces experts in international history. The studies provide skills for fields that require knowledge of different societies and cultures. Here you will find information about the degree studies and exchange studies available at our Department. Also check the links at the bottom of this page.
