The Faculty runs programmes of studies which are unique at both national and European level. We offer full-time and part-time – first and second cycle programmes, doctoral and postgraduate programmes. Our students can choose from a wide variety of specialisations which allow them to broaden the scientific horizons and acquire extensive professional competencies. We also teach foreign languages: Norwegian, English, German, French, Russian and other. Students can develop their passions and interests in many research groups.
The Faculty of History guarantees and ensures high level of internationalization of didactic offer and research. Along with the study visits of foreign professors, we offer mobility grants within ERASMUS program and other forms of international cooperation. Apart from that, we facilitate studies in other educational centres in Poland by participating in MOST student mobility program.
The Faculty is located in the Collegium Humanisticum, one of the most state-of-the-art scientific and didactic buildings in Poland. Its construction resulted in significant social benefits and enabled the improvement of the standard of education. At present, The Faculty of History boasts a modern infrastructure, which enables broadening and enhancing the educational offer, as well as align the structure of studies with European standards. As a result, the humanities graduates will be better than previously equipped to satisfy the needs and requirements of the labour market. Exceptionally high standard building facilities make it possible to increase the amount and quality of scientific research and to host big symposiums and conferences, including international ones.
