Joint Master's Programme History of Southeastern Europe

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The master’s programme History of Southeastern Europe is offered as part of a Joint Degree Programme in cooperation with the following international universities: Babeş-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca (Romania), Sofia University (Bulgaria), University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), University of Regensburg (Germany); University of Zagreb (Croatia). The range of courses is broad, interdisciplinary, cross-academic and cross-national. This programme focuses on the history of modern Southeastern countries and their cultural traditions. Students acquire knowledge of historical processes, historical anthropology of Southeastern Europe and models and methods for analysing historical and cultural processes. Furthermore, students are required to deal with general historical issues, in order to identify larger connections. This theoretical and methodical knowledge enables graduates to deal with questions concerning the integration of regions of Southeastern European. Students are required to complete a semester abroad at a partner university offering various specialisations, thus enabling them to acquire language-specific skills in a relevant language (Bulgarian, German, Croatian, Modern Greek, Romanian, Serbian, Slovenian). Experiencing other cultural and social circumstances promotes abilities such as troubleshooting competences, the ability to communicate on an intercultural level and social skills. Students develop understanding for foreign cultures as well as openness and tolerance.

Expected results

Graduates of this master’s programme will be able to understand the historical and cultural change of Southeastern European societies as well as distinguish between the dynamics, complexities and interrelations of these changes. They will be able to analyse several historical, anthropological and philosophical areas with the help of theory, methodology and interdisciplinary approaches.
