The program is divided into the Master program (generally in the 7th and 8th semesters) and the final phase (generally in the 9th and 10th semesters).
The Master program has a seminar phase, one or more modules in historical scholarship, and the master thesis in the major and mono course of study (final phase). All courses conclude with a performance assessment and all are graded, with the exception of lectures. In the 30/30 minor program, students take courses from the Bachelor and Master level. Students first take courses related to a specific historical era that they choose, but which may not be the same era they focused on in the Bachelor program. At the same time, they also attend courses in a main subject field that they choose.
The Master in History program with a major or mono course of study concludes with the master thesis. A major seminar generally completes the requirement for the minor program.
