Career perspective

In many respects, historians are highly valued in the labor market, particularly in the field of politics, education, journalism, business and government administration. Historians have extensive knowledge of the past, which enables them to identify current issues in global society. They are able to gather information rapidly, assess various digital and printed sources, and compose a coherent argument.

Their historical knowledge and skills are crucial in today’s world, but they are also essential for you, as a historian, involved with, for instance, designing historical expositions, teaching, writing articles in newspapers.

The way history functions in society, plays a central role in the International Bachelor History. Therefore, significant attention is given to current problems and their historical background, in a globalising and digitalising world. Our graduates are not only specialists, they are also professionals with a wide social and historical knowledge.
