The Department of History at the University of Luxembourg offers a two-year Master's programme in Contemporary European History, starting in September 2012.
Europe has in recent years become a major framework for understanding our contemporary societies. Which practices, institutions, cultural values and interpretations shape the European continent ? What is the relation between a political process, i.e. the recent European integration, and wider social and cultural changes? To which extent is 'Europeanisation' a valuable and operable concept? How does the nation-state (a European invention) fit into processes of globalisation and regionalisation? Our Master programme addresses these questions by putting contemporary European issues into historical perspective. Rather than assume one all-encompassing definition of ‘Europe’, whether cultural or geographical, the programme highlights the different contexts within which the European past and present can be analysed. This allows for a critical understanding of complex social, cultural and economic processes. We offer a broad spectrum of methods and approaches, using our reputable expertise in the fields of the history of the European integration (Jean Monnet Chair), migration studies, social and cultural identity construction, world history, urban history and more.
The Master provides students with the necessary skills to explore contemporary European issues. The historical perspective is of key importance to tomorrow’s professionals, dealing with important socio-political issues on an academic, entrepreneurial or political level. The Master's programme in European History offers this expertise. At the same time, in close cooperation with the Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe, the Master puts special emphasis on Digital Humanities and Public History thus offering a unique blend of historical theory and practical application. The Master also offers a multilingual learning environment, and excellent student support thanks to small classes and seminar groups.
Successful completion of the Master's degree in European History will provide access to jobs in policy making, cultural consulting, journalism, publishing, teaching and museum curating. With its connections to numerous European institutions, several international cultural institutions and numerous international companies situated in Luxembourg, the Master's professional environment is both wide-ranging and stimulating.
The University of Luxembourg offers a unique gateway to Europe and the world. As one of the youngest universities in Europe, it is built on the principles of the Bologna system. As a research institution, its teaching focuses on Master's programmes and PhD supervision. The academic staff comes from all around the world and works in interdisciplinary teams.
