History

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

History involves the study of the written word in order to uncover information about the past. It includes researching, analyzing, and synthesizing knowledge about the past, as well as making new discoveries.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.

A crucial feature of the programme is its interdisciplinary character. [+]

About the Programme

A large part of historical studies is conducted as applied research. Using and interpreting historical data enables historian to construct "usable pasts" as a tool for understanding the present and imagining possible and alternative avenues of future development. Applied history embraces methods and practices dealing with identification, preservation, interpretation, and presentation of historical artefacts, texts, structures, and landscapes. In one part of our training, we focus on material objects in history and their meanings within the framework of heritage and memory studies. The other part of the training will encompass a critical approach to the politics of circulation of historically formed discourses of identity and legitimacy in present-day society. The two-pronged approach to the complex problem of historical legacy and heritage will fill out the gap in professional training in history and provide a platform for creating interactive processes that link the historical object, the historian, and the public....

Global Cultures Curriculum is intended to be a radically new approach to the humanities. Students are invited to critically analyze the “shock of the global” that is shaping our lives and societies and to abandon the traditional Eurocentric and state-centered approaches and methodologies. Hybridisation among methods and research fields, experimentation of new forms of interaction between academics and students, and a strong emphasis on cross-cultural and transnational connections are all essential elements for a new critical perspective in the study of past and present academic discourse.

Description

In line with research fields such as world and global history and post-colonial studies, Global Cultures gives a global outlook on the humanities. “Global” is not solely a synonym of “worldwide,” a dichotomy of the past and present, or limit our research to a particular geographical scale. Rather, the term encompasses systems and processes of displacement and disorientation of Eurocentric and methodological nationalism still dominant in contemporary academic discourse.... [-]
