Curriculum

The curriculum indicates the subjects for the degree and their nature (basic, required, electives, etc.), the number of credits for each subject, etc. Topics are divided into subjects, which in turn are organized into modules. In addition, it includes practical information for the student's academic life.

  • Module I, History and Human and Social Sciences (60 ECTS Credits)

    This module provides introductory, interdisciplinary training that includes subjects specific to the Degree in History. It provides the basic skills needed for students' subsequent development in higher years, not only in terms of content, but also in terms of the skills (oral and written understanding, oral expression, techniques for historians, etc.) that are essential for the more specialized subjects they will undertake towards the end of their degree.

  • Module II, History of the Western World

    This module incorporates the knowledge that is vital to a historian's training in order to provide students with a general understanding of the diachronic structure of the past and a more detailed understanding of the different periods in the history of humankind. All of this focuses primarily on the Western world and always uses a comparative point of view.

  • Module III, History of Spain and the Hispanic World

    This supplements the previous section and aims to focus on knowledge of Spain's history, as well as the history of the Americas.

  • Module IV, Supplementary Training and Professional Specialization

    The objective of this module is to open up different employment opportunities and paths for History graduates; these range from research to high school and university teaching, and take into account the employment opportunities that have proved most useful for former students.

    It allows students pursuing the Degree in History to undertake integrated pathways through subjects taught in other university degrees deemed suitable for their future training. This module includes up to 6 elective ECTS credits through internships in companies and institutions.

    We have devised pathways related to the world of heritage and cultural management, as well as business, communication and education, although other possibilities have not been ruled out. The module is therefore flexible enough to adapt to the academic and professional needs of students. Most of the basic and required subjects are taken on a quarterly basis and consist of 6 ECTS credits. Elective subjects, the majority of which consist of 3 ECTS credits, reflect the minimum training required to consolidate the acquisition of skills and abilities and customize professional pathways.

    Students have the option of doing up to 6 ECTS credits through internships in companies and institutions. Internships are optional, but they are recommended for all students, especially those who choose one of the pathways identified for the Degree in History.

    In order to be able to register for the Final Year Project (Module V), students should have complied with the general criteria established by the University of Navarra and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. In accordance with the objectives set for this subject, students must complete and submit a piece of work that demonstrates the skills they have acquired over the course of the four years of the study program. Each academic year, the School will propose a range of topics/tutors.
