History

Follow-up Master's degree in full-time form. The language of instruction is Czech.

The programme can be studied as a single subject with a specialization (History of the Early Modern Age, Medieval History, Modern History or Religious History) or in combination with another programme.

What will you learn?

The purpose of this Master’s degree study programme is to enhance the level of education and special competences for the professional work of a historian acquired during the Bachelor’s degree study programme. Students will deepen their knowledge of Czech and general history and their capability of working with a wide range of methods and become acquainted with a number of historiographical findings. The extent of the specialization within the Master’s degree study programme is primarily determined by the choice of a study plan.

The follow-up full-time Master’s degree study programme is aimed at graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in history from Masaryk University’s Faculty of Arts and at graduates in history and related subjects from other universities.

1) The course is specialized, which means that students choose one of the specializations on offer (Medieval History; History of the Early Modern Age; Modern History and Religious History). 2) The follow-up full-time Master’s degree study programme is on offer also in a form of a study plan for two-subjects study. This study is realised as a combination of a study plan for the major subject with a minor subject study plan that is part of a separate study programme.
