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 Starting in the first year, you will practise history by using historical documents of all kinds: texts from past centuries, monuments, paintings, films, unusual or symbolic objects and digital documentation.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.
