About the Department of History

The Department offers an intellectually challenging comparative and multi-disciplinary graduate and postgraduate academic training on all aspects of the history and culture since prehistoric times to the 21st century.

It provides an excellent academic gateway to the comparative history and culture of Central and Western Europe in general, and to a variety of specific issues and research topics in particular.

With a strong track record especially in Medieval and Early Modern Studies, Urban History, Cultural Anthropology and/or Modern Exile Studies, the Department prides itself with being an elite research and academic institution in the Czech republic and Central Europe.

Currently, the Department is the only institute of history in the Czech Republic running, together with seven leading European universities, a transnational English-language Master programme Euroculture, which is open to all applicants worldwide. This testifies to the Department recruitment policy which increasingly relies upon the international and cultural diversity of its student body.
