    Further Studies and Career Perspectives

    We aim to equip our graduates with skills that will matter for their future academic and/or professional careers.

    Depending on your plans for the future, a strong specialisation, and sometimes even a second specialisation, are necessary or advised. This would be the case, for instance, if you were thinking of going into teaching.

    • As a graduate of our programme, you will be qualified to pursue a Master’s degree in History and/or other fields in the Humanities.

    In some professions, the ability to grasp and analyse unfamiliar issues and subjects quickly and productively is a highly valued skill. Our programme’s interdisciplinary outlook and focus on critical thinking, presentation skills, and active engagement with historical sources prepares our graduates for careers in the following areas, among many others:

    • the media, journalism, and related professions.
