Our undergraduate programs will provide you with solid and transferable skills while enabling you to pursue your passion for history. Our very flexible course offering is structured around two complementary components: understanding the history of past societies and practising the historian’s craft. Starting in the first year, you will practise history by using historical documents of all kinds: texts from past centuries, monuments, paintings, films, unusual or symbolic objects and digital documentation. You will develop critical and analytical skills as well as competencies in research and writing sought after by employers.
In Graduate Studies, students contribute to historical research by creating their own research project with the support of their supervisor. Building on solid methodologies, fruitful approaches, and inspiring concepts, masters and doctoral students uncover unknown aspects of past societies and help reveal their relevance in today’s world. Associated with professors within our research clusters, graduate students disseminate their findings to many publics, here and abroad, and prepare themselves for diverse career opportunities.
