You’ll learn to make connections between the past and the present. You’ll research the ways in which current traditions, concepts and views on the past came to be and how they play a role in the present. You’ll learn how we now deal with the past while at the same time gaining insight into the past.
Engaging in debate
During the Master’s in History, you’ll develop a set of academic skills such being able to collect different sources and critically analyse them, to interpretate data and to form a constructive argument. You’ll also learn how to clearly present research results and how to enter into a debate with historians and other interested parties.
As an academic historian, you’ll have lots of options. You could work for museums, heritage institutions, libraries, archives, political parties, think-tanks or as a policy maker, journalist, teacher or information officer.
The History Master’s has three specialisations: one is English-taught and the other two are Dutch-taught.
