    You asked for other peoples' comments. Any social science/humanity program put out by Columbia is just a profit machine. As evidenced by the MA in liberal studies.

    My opinion is this...

    If you want to go into academia, this is a terrible option to get on a PhD track.

    If you are trying to market yourself to employers, a masters in global history isn't going to do a thing. Get something more industry specific.

    If you are looking for intellectual stimulation go for something that is half the price and won't have you paying NYC and London living costs.
