Public Presentation of the Past

How do we communicate the past to the wider public? In this minor you can select between an interdisciplinary range of courses aimed at creating and analysing images of the past.

The minor in Public Presentation of the Past combines heritage disciplines with communication and media studies offering you to learn to translate your fascination for the past into modern informed communication aimed at society. You are also asked to reflect on the social and political contexts of these narratives.

This minor is offered by the Faculty of Humanities. The faculty’s minors consist of 30 ECTS credits and earn you a second qualification that will be listed on the transcript accompanying your degree certificate.
