Learning how to make new discoveries that will contribute to a better understanding of historical events and processes that shape societies.
Our views of events in the past shape and give meaning to the present. The Research Master’s in Historical Studies brings historians together with literary, art and cultural scientists to construct critical histories of both the past and the present. We recognise that historical enquiry has important transformative potential on not just our ideas about the past but also on present day societies. We also recognise that to properly transform our interpretations, we have to look beyond borders and beyond our own discipline. That is why our specialisation has an international element and a connection to the other humanities. You’ll gain insight into general humanities methods and theories as well as those specific for historical studies. This will greatly benefit your own research and future contributions to scholarly and social debates
