Aim of Studies and Admission Arrangements
The single-major track has the purpose of broadening the student's historical education. A student who is interested in this track should apply to the departmental chairperson.
Structure and Order of Studies
A student in the single-major track chooses two foci of specialization as the primary emphasis of study. A seminar in the student's chosen area of specialization will be added to the required quota of courses of the double-major track as will another foreign language at the beginner's and advanced level.
Students in the single-major track will also take three study clusters, one of which will be in another department, and two study clusters of history studies, to be chosen in consultation with departmental instructors, from the courses offered in the department and in other departments. The department will put together the clusters on the basis of the student's areas of interest and in accordance with existing clusters and departments at the University. Every cluster will be composed of a lecture course, an exercise, a proseminar, and a seminar.
In place of a history lecture course (in one of the history clusters), the student can choose basic studies: one of the introductory courses in the Economics, Sociology, Political Science, Philosophy or other department, as well as another foreign language (to the extent of a full year's course), on condition that the choice of language to be studied is approved by the department.
The student will need to accumulate at least 70 academic credits in the department. The remaining 50 credits may be accumulated through the chosen study clusters. A student can begin to take the clusters in the second year of studies. The arrangements of studies and the selection of courses will be determined in consultation. The student in the single-major track will study 16 weekly-hours per semester of Latin: 4 in the first year, 8 in the second, and 4 in the third.
Requirements for Promotion
The requirements for promotion in the single-major track are identical to those in the double-major track. As for clusters: the student will take the examinations required by the lecture courses, the exercises, and the proseminars. Students will also present a seminar paper in one of the seminars in which they participate.
