The two-year Research Master's in History at Leiden University offers you the chance to determine a study based on your own particular interests and ambitions.
During your studies you will experience the riches and challenges of academia not only via frequent meetings with your tutor, but also during the seminars in which staff members and research master's students discuss one another's research findings and exchange scholarly views and insights.
You are encouraged to spend the third semester of your research master's abroad taking optional courses and conducting research for your thesis.
Selected students will also be able to participate in the Europaeum Vaclav Havel MA Programme, an initiative of Leiden University in cooperation with the Sorbonne (Paris) and Charles University in Prague which leads to a separate additional master certificate in European Society and Politics issued by the Europaeum Association of leading European Universities.
