The master degree programme in Historical Sciences is designed to provide students with an in-depth historical awareness, with a particular focus on the specific concerns and phases of the tradition of historical studies.

The goal is to encourage students to develop a sense of the complex historical basis that lies behind all the phenomena, processes and structures that make up reality, and the capacity to critically evaluate the various analyses of that reality, both past and current.

Historical Sciences graduates are equipped with the knowledge and competences required to work as critical agents in professional establishments which require a solid humanistic training, with particular reference to historical study. As a result of the training and skills they develop, graduates are qualified to operate in all fields that call for the capacity to coherently analyse, classify and evaluate complex information, tackling wide, complex problems and finding suitable solutions.

In particular, upon completion of associated professional qualifications and/or related competitions, i.e. by acquiring further specific technical competences, Historical Sciences graduates are qualified to pursue the following professions: historian, political sciences specialist, writer, editor of critical and didactic texts in the humanities sphere (particularly historic study), historic sciences researcher, museum, library, archival curator, humanities teacher in first and second-level secondary schools, history and philosophy teacher in second- level secondary schools, and tourist guide.

Employment Statistics (Almalaurea)

Application and admission: Open, subject to entry requirements.

Double degree

Students with in-depth knowledge of foreign languages who wish to complete part of their university studies abroad may complete periods of study in various foreign universities, thereby obtaining an academic qualification from both their home university and the foreign one (Double Degree). Historical Sciences students have the opportunity to achieve a double degree thanks to the framework of the Franco-Italian International Master (MiFi) – Franco-Italian Master's Degree (LiFi) with the University of Grenoble II or the University of Aix-Marseille.
