The curriculum includes different study methods, combining lectures and seminars with individual tutorial courses and the opportunity of an “on the spot” practical training in archives and museums. It also includes visits of relevant historical sites.
A competent staff member will be assigned to you immediately after the beginning of the first semester as a tutor (in accordance with the topic of your intended thesis) who will supervise you in writing your thesis and provide continuous consultation.
The curriculum aims to be interdisciplinary: this character is reflected in the subjects of the shared mandatory courses to be taken by all students regardless of the chosen chronological specialization, and in the range of fields covered within the given specialization (e.g. palaeography, iconography, history of ideas). The Medieval and Early Modern History specialization and the Modern History specialization give equal weight to General History and Central European History: Hungarian History is presented as part of Central European History. This approach enables you to connect events of Central European History with well-known phenomena of the European past, and understand current problems.
