In this Master's programme we examine the role of culture in shaping past and present. We learn about the history of ideas and social practices, study how people use history today, apply cultural theories, and explore the formation of social identities and cultural heritage. We use transnational and comparative approaches to examine European cultural history in a global context. We ensure there is a balance between the theory and practice in our programme through the combination of courses, internships, and thesis.
You have a demonstrable interest in cultural history, heritage, public history, or cultural issues in modern society.
You are interested in the use and application of theories and concepts in cultural history and show evidence of analytic ability in history or cultural studies.
You are able to design and conduct historical research and have strong reading and writing skills.
You possess initiative and good communicative and cooperative skills.
