Studying History


Academics and Teaching

Copyright: © RWTH Aachen

Studying history in Aachen is a great choice!

Why? We have "historical ground" here; the Romans were here, as was Charlemagne; the cathedral is protected by UNESCO; German kings were crowned here for centuries. There's nothing like our history program, with the option to complete a doctorate later on, anywhere else!

Those, who want to be a teacher, can pursue a Bachelor's and Master's in the subject History, Gymnasium and Gesamtschule Teacher.

Teaching Content in Aachen:

Students are taught the three great eras of ancient Mediterranean history (Greece, Rome, and bordering regions), European Medieval Ages, the Early Modern Expansion, and the modern European and non-European worlds. The aspect of technical cultures plays an important role in the studies.
