History

What will you learn?

The purpose of this Bachelor’s degree study programme is to acquire and internalize the basic level of education and special competences for the professional work of a historian, namely taking up high school knowledge. Students will acquire an overview of Czech and general history from prehistoric times up to the present and will acquaint themselves with the methodology and organization of historical research and important moments in historiography. Choosing facultative lectures and seminars, students can focus their interest in specific historical periods or topics. The study of history is intended not only for those concerned with the field of history and historiography, but also for people interested in other social sciences and humanities: the Bachelor’s degree study programme in history represents a suitable introduction to further study in different disciplines, since it provides basic information and findings about the function, logic, and structure of human society in the course of history. Students learn how to work with historical sources and how to obtain, analyse, and contextualize their information potential. Students are directed in both the individual searching and critical sorting of information. Abilities in relevant argumentation and independent critical thinking are particularly encouraged and desired. Acquiring such knowledge and competences is very important in terms of the nature of the field, i.e. the fact that knowledge and understanding of history is not direct, but mediated through historical evidence.

The Bachelor’s degree study programme is on offer either as one study programme (single-subject study) or a combination of two separate study programmes (two-subject study).
