History is educational, entertaining and an indispensable part of general education. History studies the development of human society in time and space; she gains her knowledge primarily from working with historical sources.

The master’s degree serves to deepen knowledge of historical processes from antiquity to the present. The students learn to analyze different types of sources and to critically deal with current research trends and theories of historical studies. Another central content of the course is the deepening of subject didactics, specifically the ability to further didactic and methodological development of history lessons.

Admission with conditions

In the case of admission with conditions, you will be admitted, but you must catch up on certain examinations from the bachelor's degree before you register for the master's thesis. This can be the case, for example, if you completed your bachelor's degree at another university or a university of applied sciences and did not take seminars or modules there that you need for the master’s degree at the University of Stuttgart. The final decision as to whether your professional aptitude is recognized as sufficient is made by the admissions committee .
