Choose a master
With your bachelor's degree in your pocket, you can take a master's degree in order to specialize further. The bachelor's degree in History prepares you for the following masters:
1-year master's programmes:
- Conflict Studies and Human Rights
- Cultural History of Modern Europe
- International Relations in Historical Perspective
- History of Politics and Society
Research master's programmes (2 years):
Teacher training programmes:
- 2 years: Geschiedenis: educatie en communicatie (Hostory: Education and Communcation)
This two-year teacher training programme trains you to become a first-degree teacher in secondary education. This means that you can work in the lower and upper levels of secondary vocational education (VMBO), senior general secondary education (HAVO) and pre-university education (VWO) in the Netherlands.
- 1 year: eenjarige lerarenopleiding (Teacher-prepared-higher education)
Instead of doing the 2 year teacher training programme, you can also first do another one-year master's programme on the subject and then a one-year teacher training programme (in Dutch). These diplomas give you the same opportunities as the two-year teacher training programme.
