Course on International History

This course is a required class for all students seeking a degree in International Affairs in the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh. It provides students with a survey of diplomatic and political international history from the late nineteenth century to the present that can help them understand the problems and challenges of policymaking in the international arena. Unlike graduate courses in traditional history departments, in which the emphasis is on how to "do" history, this course seeks to acquaint students in a policy school with the "what" of history-what happened-and prepare them to think rigorously about how history can be used to inform and improve policymaking in the current international environment. Course assignments help students develop both their understanding of the material and transferable analytical and communication skills.
