Memory is an unreliable guide for journeys into the past. Memory lies, glosses over, alters and leaves out decisive elements. It dazzles and creates glittering pictures – leaving gaps in-between. It is in these gaps that the work of historians can be found. Students taking the Master of History learn to research, investigate and interpret texts and images from the past. They are also trained to translate the results of their work into readable texts. At Master’s level, the programme ultimately offers an opportunity for students to develop and further pursue their own specialisations.
