The opportunities offered by an international degree programme


Double degree in History at Bielefeld University – BiBoG

Unibo students will attend first year courses at Unibo and second year courses at Bielefeld University.

The University of Bielefeld is one of the most internationally renowned research centers in history. The "school of Bielefeld" is not only a mark of recognition for modern research in history, but also a place of vibrant discussion among teachers, researchers, students, and scholars from other countries. Study groups organized by teachers and students, weekly "interviews" as part of the excellence project of the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology, special research fields and several international partnerships create a stimulating environment in which students are called to participate actively. The Master of Arts Geschichtswissenschaft aims to train historians not only for traditional jobs – museums, archives, universities, schools – but also for fields such as media, public relations, foundations, education and knowledge management in businesses.

Master Programme in African Studies at Dalarna University, Falun (Sweden)

The framework agreement between the University of Bologna and Dalarna University, Sweden, offers to second year students a chance to focus on African studies.

The program is hosted at the Dalarna University Center for African Studies (DUCAS), a research and teaching center on Africa that works with 25 international partners in Europe and Africa. Thanks to the contribution of teachers and scholars from partner universities, the Master in African Studies offers multidisciplinary teaching in an international context.

Courses allow students to deepen the history, cultures, religions, politics and economics of the African continent, as well as to study issues related to gender, human rights and education in Africa. At the end of the course, the student develops in-depth knowledge and a critical ability to analyze various aspects of African economies, cultures and societies, which prepares him for professions in NGOs, international organizations, cultural associations, etc.
