History for Education

General information

The study of History with a Focus on Education opens the way for students to understand various forms of social behaviour, social institutions, processes and relationships in the past. The studies in this field present history as a modern and socially beneficial academic discipline using the very latest information technology. They cover individual history disciplines, including auxiliary historical sciences, and also take in archaeological research at the Great Moravian hillfort in Znojmo and history excursions. Overall, these studies aim to develop professional, pedagogical, psychological, communicational and other personal and cultural skills as a basis for a subsequent Master’s degree in primary school teaching. The aim of the three-year Bachelor's programme is to prepare specialists with a university qualification for the profession of teaching assistant to a History teacher. The aim of these studies is active mastery of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills to enable the graduate to perform the profession in an independent and responsible manner. The studies in this field are conceived in such a way as to provide students with a comprehensive overview of history from prehistoric times, taking in the Middle Ages, the early modern age and the modern history of the 19th and 20th centuries. In the third year, students are acquainted with the genesis, development and fundamentals of the didactics of history. The student is able to characterise the main historical stages in the development of the didactics of history.

A successful graduate is able to

  • work as a teaching assistant to a History teacher
  • work as an instructor at a free-time centre
  • perform instructional and remedial educational work
  • work as a carer in a children’s home
  • work as a carer at an after-school club

Graduate employment

The knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired during these studies form a basis for the competence necessary for work as a teaching assistant to a History teacher and for instructional and remedial educational work. The given skills also represent full qualification for the work of an instructor at a free-time centre. It is anticipated that the majority of students will take subsequent Master’s degree studies in which they will extend their knowledge in synthesising subjects and expand their practical skills to take in additional special methods. Graduates of the study field History with a Specialisation in Education can also find opportunities in local government and non-profit organisations. Graduates can offer future employers both practical skills in the use of information technology and also language skills.
