Institute of History

Besides looking at the classical periods, the Middle ages, the early modern period and modern and contemporary history, the History Department analyses the past from a regional perspective. This includes the history and culture of Eastern (Central) Europe, in cooperation with the "Research Centre for East European Studies", and non-European history (Latin America). Other working groups are "State of Bremen Archaeology" and the German Shipping Museum. Our innovative areas of focus include disability history, the history of shipping and slavery in Europe, photography and film and digital history.

At the University of Bremen, History can either be studied in a single-subject or two-subject Bachelor's programme or also within a teacher training programme. Graduates from the Bachelor's programme may enroll in the Master's degree programme in History.
