Study content

In this study programme, students acquire advanced subject-specific and interdisciplinary competences in dealing with historical sources. The very research-oriented range of courses allows for a variety of thematic specialisations in the course of the degree programme. Thus, preliminary studies for the later Master's thesis can be conducted at an early stage. Excursions and interdisciplinary modules in related disciplines are also an integral part of the programme. Application-related and professional competences are developed through creditable internships and project work.
