Characteristics and objectives
The curriculum provides specialist training in the historical field, covering the period from late antiquity to the contemporary age.
The course has as main objective to provide students with:
• full awareness of the tools and methods of historical research;
• thorough knowledge of historical themes and processes relating to one of the three traditional periodising segments (Medieval age, Modern age, Contemporary age);
• in-depth knowledge of the debates that run through contemporary historiography;
• the ability to deal with themes and methods from other disciplines (social sciences, philosophy, literature), which are functional to their educational path.
In the courses taught, the reconstruction of the past is carried out through different analytical perspectives (from political and institutional history, to cultural, social, environmental, economic, religious, gender history), which allow those who study to get in touch with and to discuss the main historiographic methods and schools.
The course is also structured in order to offer students the opportunity to acquire the essential notions for a critical and conscious use of the various types of documentary material. Finally, among the subjects classified as optional ("Affini e integrative"), the course includes courses in literary and philosophical subjects, which are not only valuable for the overall human sciences training of those who study, but can also grant access to a career as teachers in secondary schools.
At the end of the master’s course in Historical Sciences, students will have gained a critical knowledge of the main historical phenomena, will be able to independently identify the methods and tools that are useful for their reconstruction and will have acquired the skills to communicate in an appropriate way the knowledge they have acquired.
