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.
