Study content

Any study of the social sciences includes both very broad and very specific subjects. In your Master of History, you are most likely to set your own specific focus, for instance on modern history. The advantage of the wide-ranging Master of History, as compared to a Master of Modern History, is that you can choose subjects of almost any historic era, ranging from ancient studies to post-socialist Eastern Europe.

Moreover, you will draw from a variety of academic disciplines to look at historical events from an objective view. Whether economic history, history of political thought, social or cultural history, the choice is great and you learn to acquire a broad understanding of the historical context.

Career prospects with a Master of History

Your professional prospects are ubiquitous. Research, adult teaching, cultural advisory, historic and cultural preservation, documentation and archive filing, politics, administration or journalism only resemble a selection of career prospects. No matter what your individual profile looks like, a Master of History may open up the path to a successful future career, if you decide to go for it.

Admission criteria

The two-year Master of History requires a successfully completed undergraduate degree in History. Basic skills in Latin and Greek are another common admission criterion. Contact the university of your choice in advance in order to find out about additional criteria.
