The Master’s degree study programme in Auxiliary Historical Sciences prepares qualified professionals for work with various types of historical sources. The objective of the study is to deepen interpretative and methodological skills in particular auxiliary historical sciences and application of the theoretical knowledge and skills in compiling historical sources, mainly in the form of critical editions. Students will learn basic methods of interpretation and text review and will be able to apply the acquired skills in auxiliary historical sciences within an interdisciplinary approach in a wider context of historical sciences. They will acquire language skills both in current expert communication and in historical grammar books of the main source languages in Czech archives.
Practical training is not an obligatory part of the study plan. However, students may participate in research assignments or choose optional practical training in cultural research institutions.
Graduates of this Master’s degree study programme will be prepared for a further expert career, including compiling and cataloguing historical archival funds and collections in archives, libraries with historical collections, museums, and galleries.
