The contemporary world has been introduced to the idea that history and its research should be treated with respect merged with some skepticism. History is a study of the past; it often seeks to discover patterns of cause and effect that can objectively determine events of the past. Scholars mostly use narrative to analyze and unravel the events of the past. At the same time, the narrative method leads to a problem, controversial with the objectiveness, which historical science claims to have. The problem is that history is always written in the context of the time contemporary to the narrator. If you are interested in these issues surrounding the study of history, then a Master in History is an excellent first step into the professional field.

To leave the philosophical questions aside, History assists many fields of knowledge, for example Medieval Studies, International History, World History and Cultural Heritage. These are also examples of specialization areas that students can choose with a Master in History program. Some of the combined elements that almost any Master in History program consists of are cultural, demographic, intellectual, economic and political facts and bonds that tie up the historical narrative and provide a holistic picture of the matter. Library and archive work is greatly involved, as well as renowned deductive methods that will turn your Master in History degree into a real adventure along the path of the past.

The Master's Program in History at Georgetown is rooted in the core belief that interconnections among the globe’s diverse regions and cultures have played a crucial role in shaping societies’ development since long before the modern era, and that a deep understanding of these historical forces is essential to grasping the world we currently live in. History as a discipline aims to analyze and integrate politics and states, production and work, environment and society, culture and religion, and gender and family. Georgetown History MA students research these aspects of human society as they change over time, by setting local, regional, and national developments in trans-regional or global contexts. -

The public history program is addressed to all the BA graduates, not only in history, and even not only in the humanities, who would like to conduct the research about and promote the public uses of history. Public history has been operating since the 1970s as a subdiscipline of history, but also as a separate academic discipline. It is called the history "for the people, by the people, with the people, of the people" and deals with all the aspects of history outside the formal education (also academic education). It operates for many years at the universities world-wide and enjoys considerable popularity among the students. -
