The master’s program seeks to instill an awareness of the presentation of historical content and problems of modern history in forms adapted to the media and publicity. The program not only poses academic questions, but also addresses aesthetic, political, and commercial dimensions of the engagement with history. In the program, students obtain theoretical competence in terms of the principles of how historical culture and historical learning operate, and acquire practical abilities such as presentation techniques and project management.
