    The School of Liberal Studies (SLS) offers a range of interdisciplinary and overlapping programmes that support, encourage and redefine liberal arts education through cutting-edge interdisciplinary courses, interactive pedagogy and learning that goes beyond classroom spaces. The MA History programme is designed to impart understanding of historical phenomena and processes as well as to transmit skills of historical analysis and encourage the historical imagination.

    The programme teaches students to inquire historically while making use of insights and interpretive techniques of other disciplines, and it seeks to encourage a spirit of critical thinking about contemporary social questions. Skills acquired through the programme shall serve programme graduates well not only in academic but in such careers as journalism, publishing, educational administration, museum/archive management, tourism/heritage management and government service (among others).
