doc. PhDr. Dalibor Havel, Ph.D.
Bachelor's degree in full-time form. The language of instruction is Czech.
The programme can be studied as a single subject or in combination with another programme.
This Bachelor’s degree programme prepares qualified professionals for work with various types of historical sources. The objective of the study programme is to gain detailed knowledge in particular fields of study within the group of auxiliary historical sciences (with an emphasis on diplomatics, palaeography, codicology, chronology, and sphragistics) in the context of historical sciences. Students learn basic methods of auxiliary historical sciences and become familiar with their role as a means for interpreting historical sources. They gain general knowledge of other auxiliary historical sciences (heraldry, genealogy, epigraphy, numismatics, metrology, filigranology, phaleristics, vexillology). Students gain a thorough knowledge of early Czech and general history (medieval and early modern times) and also of legal history, historical archaeology, and art history. They will be able to apply the knowledge of particular disciplines mainly in compiling textual and visual historical sources.
The study programme includes obligatory practical trainings. Students may choose individual practical training in selected memory institutions.
Graduates of the study programme Auxiliary Historical Sciences have the knowledge and skills applicable in basic activities in archives, museums, galleries, and libraries, and in research institutions, especially in compiling historical collections. However, graduates from the Bachelor’s degree programme are expected to continue in the Master’s degree programme in Auxiliary Historical Sciences.
For admission for studies in this degree programme, you do not need to take the TSP.
Secondary school results may be applied for an exemption from the entrance examination by those applicants whose average grade was 1.5 or higher in each of the four profile subjects. The total average result in all subjects is not taken into consideration. Secondary school seminars are also disregarded. The average grade of each profile subject is calculated based on the results of the last four years of study in the following way: the mid-year grade is calculated from the final year, whereas the final grades are calculated from the previous three years. It is also necessary that applicants have studied each of the profile subjects for at least two years during the last four years.
Enter your grades in your e-application. Then print the grades out and let your secondary school certify them with a stamp and a signature. Upload the scan of the certified grades into your e-application. You can also upload officially certified school reports or any other documents certifying your school results.
Please upload the officially certified documents directly to your e-application in the section Application for the Exemption from the Entrance Examination no later than 28 February.
Minimum score and numbers of accepted applicants in past years
Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.
In this type of studies, the students focus on the main degree programme (120 credits) supplemented with another, minor, programme (60 credits). The student enrols in the degree programme in which he/she majors. Both the programmes are stated in the university diploma. You will find possible combinations on the websites of individual degree programmes. An exception is programmes preparing students for teaching professions, where both fields of study are equal and the thesis may be written in any of them.
