Choosing a topic for the master’s thesis is a very important point that needs to be approached responsibly. It should meet the interests of the researcher, be relevant and make a certain contribution to the scientific community. Emilien Mantel, a 2022 graduate of the Master’s Programme 'Global and Regional History', shared his personal experience and talked about plans for the future.
The Master's in Global and Regional History has students from Russia and all over the world. Some of them already have experience with historical methods, while others are encountering this academic field for the first time. We asked the students to share their personal experiences and tell us what they remembered the most about their first year at HSE University, what is unique and interesting about the programme, and whether it is difficult to study in English.
