The degree program
The degree program offers a well-founded basic historical training in the eras of Antiquity, the Middle Ages and modern times, as well as in the historical subdisciplines. Basic training in the first year of study is followed by more detailed teaching of knowledge in all eras and individual specialization: Compulsory elective modules can be chosen individually and according to interests. Excursions or historical projects teach key qualifications that intensify the subject-specific studies and supplement them with practical elements.
The methodological approach is addressed in all seminars to allow students to develop a well-founded specialist knowledge and interdisciplinary methodological skills by the time they complete their degree. Repeated oral and written work on historical facts provides particularly good training in subject-specific vocabulary and techniques of scientific argumentation. Critical examination of complex issues and different sources also sharpens social, political and historical awareness.
Can be studied as...
- An advanced major subject (Concept B)
- A major subject (concept C and D)
- A minor subject (concept B and D)
