Department of History Mission Statement

As researchers and teachers at RWTH Aachen, it is our responsibility to address the cultural and political challenges of a globalized, knowledge-based, and innovative world, in order to gain an awareness of problems, self confidence, and an ability to act in the present. History studies in Aachen underline the otherness and unfamiliarity of past, regionally and socially different living environments.
