History (Bachelor)


Main subject:

Students are taught the fundamental ideas, methodologies and techniques of historical study that are needed for the critical analysis of historical sources and research texts. They also acquire proficiency in presenting historical knowledge and facts correctly and in using the appropriate terminology and language. Academic course units, such as lectures, seminars and tutorials, are used to develop and apply the students’ didactic, social and communicative expertise. Practical training and work placements enable students to gain an insight into possible future careers, while excursions provide students with an opportunity to engage with the written records and archaeological evidence of earlier human civilizations.

Another integral aspect of the programme is the inclusion of career-related elements and the opportunity for students to acquire additional vocational qualifications. The structure of the B.A. programme in history ensures that students acquire key interdisciplinary skill sets that are of direct relevance for careers in the academic, business, administrative and social sectors. Graduates from the programme find positions in museums, libraries and archives or in the publishing and media sectors, they can also work in public relations and cultural management in public and private organizations and institutions, or can take up positions in the tourism and marketing industries.
