Course description

The European community gradually interconnects ever more closely. The meaning of nationality loses its appeal and European politics gains in complexity. In order to comprehend these developments and to scientifically grasp them, the analysis of the wider European historic context is necessary.

In your Masters programme in European History, you do not only focus on European integration but on the historic emergence of today’s Europe. You deal with ancient Europe, the medieval times, renaissance and modern history alike. Parted into historically fundamental sequences, you analyse ethnic belongings, religious groupings and transnational relations. With a deep background knowledge, the Master of European History allows you to comprehend the European Union of today.

As this Masters programme focuses on Europe, most universities offer their students the opportunity to go abroad for a semester or two. The average duration of the entire programme is four semesters. Hence, your time abroad allows for an individual focus as well as an opportunity to develop your personal skills. Contact the university of your choice early on and inform yourself whether or not a study abroad is possible or even compulsory.

Career prospects throughout Europe

The Masters degree in European History opens up various job opportunities. Cultural institutes, museums, education institutions, R&D or politics, the broadness of your academic knowledge and your individual skills should guarantee you a position in a professional sector of your interest.
