Master's program

Oral History and Contemporary History

The two-year distance Master's study program in Oral History and Contemporary History is intended for students interested in contemporary European history, interviewing methodologies, and interpretative methods. Its main aim is to train students to conduct research through creating and analyzing interviews, and developing fieldwork projects to address those historical and contemporary issues that require interdisciplinary investigation.

Applications Closed

The distance study program is taught in person at the Faculty in Prague. This means that your classes will be held at the Faculty headquarters. The distance form of study means that your classes will be scheduled usually on Fridays or Saturdays.

The language of tuition is English. The standard length of study is 2 years.





Applications are closed in this admission round. 

The tuition fee is 2000 euros per academic year. The fee is generated at the beginning of each academic year - you do not have to pay anything before enrollment.

The tuition fee is the same for both our EU and non-EU applicants.

There are two admission requirements: 

 submit the relevant documents

 submit your BA diploma

We ask you to submit these documents: a structured CV, motivation letter, and an academic paper of min. 15 pages.

After the department assesses your documents and accepts you, you will be asked to provide proof of your previous education - learn more about the process here.
