Your programme offers room for six electives (30 EC) from a broad range of specialised courses and research tutorials within or outside our department.
Electives include courses offered by one of the National Research Schools (at least 10 EC, compulsory), and in addition courses by other Master's programmes and research tutorials. You can find an overview of electives offered by other programme's here. Please note that some electives require approval for participation by the course- or programmecoordinator.
The research tutorials offer insight in a specific area of history. You will discuss texts together with a lecturer and up to six other students. Students value the personal attention in these tutorials. Topics for example are: The history of neoliberalism, Modernity and history, The Black Atlantic, The German question, Understanding moral revolutions, History of the body and Hazards and Disasters. You can enroll serveral times, using different course codes: GKRMV16041, GKRMV16042, GKRMV16043, GKRMV16044. These course codes do not correspond to particular tutorials, they are general codes used to register your grades. More information is available in the Programme Book.
