Auxiliary Historical Sciences
This Bachelor’s degree programme prepares qualified professionals for work with various types of historical sources. The objective of the study programme is to gain detailed knowledge in particular fields of study within the group of auxiliary historical sciences (with an emphasis on diplomatics, palaeography, codicology, chronology, and sphragistics) in the context of historical sciences. Students learn basic methods of auxiliary historical sciences and become familiar with their role as a means for interpreting historical sources. They gain general knowledge of other auxiliary historical sciences (heraldry, genealogy, epigraphy, numismatics, metrology, filigranology, phaleristics, vexillology). Students gain a thorough knowledge of early Czech and general history (medieval and early modern times) and also of legal history, historical archaeology, and art history. They will be able to apply the knowledge of particular disciplines mainly in compiling textual and visual historical sources.
Practical training is not an obligatory part of the study plan. However, students may take part in research tasks of department assignments or may choose optional practical training in cultural research institutions.
Graduates of the study programme Auxiliary Historical Sciences have the knowledge and skills applicable in basic activities in archives, museums, galleries, and libraries, and in research institutions, especially in compiling historical collections. However, graduates from the Bachelor’s degree programme are expected to continue in the Master’s degree programme in Auxiliary Historical Sciences.
Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.
In this type of studies, the students focus on the main degree programme (120 credits) supplemented with another, minor, programme (60 credits). The student enrols in the degree programme in which he/she majors. Both the programmes are stated in the university diploma. You will find possible combinations on the websites of individual degree programmes.
