UNDERGRADUATE UNIVERSITY STUDIES IN HISTORY
one-subject and two-subject

In Brief!

Academic title: Bachelor (baccalaureus/baccalaurea) of History (univ. bacc. hist.)

Duration of studies: 6 semesters

Completion of studies: a minimum of 180 ECTS credits and passing of all exams for one-subject study; a minimum of 90 ECTS credits and passing of all exams for the two-subject course of study

 

In each semester, students take compulsory and elective courses (a minimum of 30 ECTS credits). In order to introduce students to various fields of history, the study programme includes several groups of courses, i.e. basic History courses, methodological and specific courses such as Auxiliary Sciences of History and Latin.

As a rule, the students’ work in all courses is evaluated throughout the semester through periodic tests (preliminary exams, tests) and through activities at lectures, seminars and exercises (account for 70% of the final mark) and the final exam (accounts for 30% of the final mark). This model encourages students to study regularly and master the teaching material.

What are you going to learn?

Undergraduate university studies are an introduction to different periods of history (Antiquity, Middle Ages, Modern History, Contemporary History). The objective of undergraduate university studies in History is to master the basic concepts of history, develop critical thinking and independence in work and master research methodology and the necessary skills to write and present a scientific paper. History courses make up the bulk of the programme, however, interdisciplinarity is promoted to enhance the students’ general knowledge and expand their horizons beyond the profession. Thus, students take courses in other disciplines and several courses in Theology.
