Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Department of History

The Department


The Institute of Historical Studies at Humboldt-Universität is a traditional and lively place of historical research and teaching. Its professors deal with the bright and dark sides of European history in the periods of antiquity, the Middle Ages and modernity, with the global interconnections of nation states and empires, the everyday life of people in changing times. Teaching and research thrive on academic curiosity and openness. The Institute is particularly committed to this principle.
