Job opportunities

Graduates of the Master in History possess—on top of their vast cultural knowledge and summarising skills—a specific ability to critically analyze information and any existing type of document. This is why studies in history can lead to a great variety of careers: teaching; administration; libraries and documentation centers; museums and cultural centers; any event that involves ‘memory’ or references to the past; those, and many more, are opportunities for a historian's skills to shine. In addition, the very object of their study gives graduates a strong sense of humanity and the concrete conditions governing its existence, as well as the evolution of these conditions, allow them—as do their methodological and organisational skills—to work in many professions that place humans at the forefront: NGOs, social work, etc....

Creation process

In the process of literary writing there is a problem to be solved, an aesthetic intention that needs a form, an artistic duty that leads to inquiry through the word. Therefore, for creation to take place, a continuous research process is indispensable in which the writer -from a certain state of language, of certain forms of history and culture- produces and modifies cultural and human realities. The "creative praxis", as a search for the nonexistent text, becomes the program's proposal for a different form of research.... [-]

The History program aims to create a new generation of Arab researchers in the field of Arab and Islamic History, to build on the experience accumulated by prominent professors in the field of historical studies from Arab and Western universities. This program makes recourse to a multiplicity of new western theories in the field of historical research. The program aims to fathom the depths of the history of economic, political, social and intellectual structures in Arab countries while revisiting historical events with the goal of reinterpretation based on new research methodologies.

The program accords particular importance to the study of Arab history within the various regional and international processes. It also seeks to step into new territory by offering the study of current or immediate history. In all it proposes to do, the program aims to impress on students the necessity of diversifying news sources through exposure to various Arabic and western archives. This exposure to the history of structures and relational history will familiarize students with modern schools of history and will enable them to write Arab history in a new manner, which contributes to overcoming tradition and focusing on new methodological frameworks....

Students can choose within the optional courses those that help them best in their work on diploma theses or deepen their knowledge on the topic. They may choose not only the courses of PANE, but also courses offered by Central European Archaeology, Classical Archaeology, Museology, Ancient History or Religious Studies.

Deepening the knowledge of religions has become urgent. On the one hand, the 21st century has begun marked by conflicts that, under the label of "religious", hide a complex network of factors that go far beyond religion, but are inextricably linked to it. On the other hand, population movements are becoming more frequent, and we are especially aware today that peaceful coexistence between cultures requires both knowing one's identity and understanding and respecting the identity of others. The Master of Science in Religions: History and Society offers solid knowledge and methods of analysis on the great religious traditions of the History of Humanity, as well as tools for the management of religious diversity in contemporary societies. The first part of the Master, of an introductory nature, includes methodological, historical and legal contents. The second part is divided in two itineraries, designed for the student to specialize in "History of Religions" or "Management of religious and cultural diversity". Participating in the Masters are specialists of recognized trajectory of the Pablo de Olavide University, Carlos III University of Madrid, the University of La Laguna, as well as other universities and institutions....
