General information

The 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. The course is specialized, which means that students choose one of the specializations on offer (Medieval History; History of the Early Modern Age; 19th and 20th Century History; International Relations and European Studies; Religious History; or Modern History and the Multicultural Society); lectures and seminars on specific historical issues will expand on the basic knowledge acquired during the Bachelor’s degree course and provide a firm grasp of the basic principles of academic historical research.

  • understand the basic methodological approaches to history and be familiar with academic literature
