Degree programme in History
The teaching on the degree programme goes from the Age of Antiquity to recent history and is thematically structured. Teaching stresses the social history perspective. This means the scrutiny of historical phenomena in the long term, comparative and conceptual research emphasizing the societal relevance of historical research, and a critical stance to its time. Changing the world entails understanding the world. Engaging in historical research is an essential means in learning historical thinking. Teaching begins by introducing students to the conceptual constellation of historical research and historiography and continues with scientific practice or methodology and their application. As studies progress students' conception of history will become increasingly diversified. They will also find themselves equipped to shape their own picture of the world and shoulder more responsibility for their studies. Conducting research will be practiced especially through practicum, the Bachelor's seminar and seminar teaching. In addition to these there are also thematic thesis groups in history, where students' written texts, working papers, presentations and other material are processed. Research culminates in the preparation of the Master's thesis.
