Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Joint MA in European History

Study Structure


The Joint Master in European History is a two year Master’s programme divided into four semesters (two winter and two summer semesters). The programme has a modular structure according to the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). It is made up of 120 credits (30 credits each term). The total of 120 credits are divided into 10 credits for a history introduction module, 50 credits for history modules, 30 credits for academic profiling, and 30 credits for the Master’s thesis.

In principle, English is the language of instruction and will be accepted at all partner universities for presentations, assignment and the Master thesis. The partner universities offer modules in English for at least 30 ECTS as a core programme per semester, complemented by courses or modules in other languages (e.g. language of the host university).

All students are required to complete a Master’s thesis written in english. The Parties will ensure that students may successfully complete their Master’s thesis within 4-6 months, in general in the 4th semester. The topic of the Master’s thesis is to be specified within the scope of the MEH. It has to be a study about historical processes in Europe. The workload is 30 ECTS credits. The Master’s thesis has to be graded by two referees of two different Parties, if this is in accordance with national law. Students have to defend the thesis.
