At the end of the first year you choose a specialisation, made up of a group of 4 related specialist subjects. You take your specialisation subjects in the second year, all on level 3. All students develop the same types of skills, even though the subject matter differs between profiles. You may also use your optional course profile to take subjects from another specialisation. The specialisation you choose relates to either the History track or the International Relations track.
Specialisations core of your 2nd year
Specialisations form the core of the second-year History programme. On the one hand, they are broad and varied in nature, providing a wide selection. On the other, a specialisation allows you to deepen your knowledge according to your interests, and build up a specialisation in a certain field. All specialisations are structured the same way:
- an introductory subject,
- two research seminars and
- an in-depth case-study module
Preparation for a master's programme
None of the specialisations below prepare students for a Master's programme more specifically than any other; Master's selection is based on all Bachelor's subjects and results (including minors and specialisations), as well as the student's motivation.
Below you will find more information about the specialisations and how to enroll.
