also be used to define a topic for your MA thesis History.

Inhoud vak

In semester 2, period 4, students can choose one of the MA History
courses on offer, opt for an internship or choose a tutorial of 6 ec. If
students want to take a tutorial, they choose from one of the topics on
offer. A list with tutorial topics offered by different lecturers will
be published by the MA coordinator in the first semester. After choosing
a topic, the student has to contact the lecturer to jointly define a
topic tailored to the student’s interest. They then agree on a reading
list of 600-800 pages, based on (a) book(s) or a combination of book(s)
and articles. The student makes reading notes and discusses these with
the tutor on a weekly basis. The tutorial is finished with an oral exam
and or a paper that discusses the historiography or current state of the
art of the literature on the subject.
Alternatively, students could define their own topic and ask a lecturer
as a supervisor. They can check the personal websites of the History
staff members to find out more about a lecturer’s expertise and about
what topics, themes and projects a lecturer is involved in. Some
staff-members may have room for a student to join a project.


Individual trajectory. Several meetings should be scheduled by the
lecturer and student.


Assignments and/or a final paper.


MA History students.
