The undergraduate programme at the Economic History Department comprises courses of a general character as well as specialised in-depth courses. The first term's study provides a broad knowledge base that facilitates the understanding of several other subjects e.g. economics, sociology, and political science. Further study in economic history can constitute the major subject in a bachelor's or master's degree, and has been shown to be a worthwhile investment in terms of employment after graduation. A selection of courses is offered in English.
