“History is a guide to understanding our presence”

The doctoral study is clearly focused on the development of the scientific and academic potential of students, culminating in a dissertation as an independent research performance, which is based not only on the original elaboration of a selected topic, but also corresponds to adequate theoretical and methodological postulates of modern historical thinking.
