The programme has a unique character due to the combination of a broad common curriculum and specialisations. All students follow a number of basic subjects and choose one of the specialisations. Furthermore, you will have the option to choose an internship, tutorials and electives. You can write your master’s thesis on a topic of your choice within the broader field of your specialisation. The master’s degree course in history at VU Amsterdam offers four specialisation programmes. Click on one of the programmes below for more information.
