The Master of Arts in History programme consists primarily of elective courses with a focus on research. It enables students to specialise in a specific area, to participate in up-to-date research projects, and it offers the opportunity to acquire teaching skills as student tutors. The compulsory internship in a relevant field gives the student practical experience to lay the groundwork for a post-university career.
A mentoring system is in place to guide and advise the student over the four semesters. A semester abroad is not mandatory but nevertheless strongly recommended and is ideally integrated into the third semester.
To broaden career perspectives, an internship of at least nine weeks' duration is an integral part of the programme.
