Finnish History - a Major Discipline
Finnish history studies our common past from the Middle Ages to the present, while the latest research results are included in teaching on all levels. Consequently, students can benefit from the staff?s versatile expertise in the research of Finnish society and are trained to examine Finland as part of larger entities.
Liberal education and understanding of historical causalities are invaluable advantages to future teachers and journalists as well as in many tasks of public administration. The discipline also provides a unique opportunity to gain a qualification for archival occupations.
Finnish history covers all aspects of human life. In addition, it examines the changes of the environment and its interaction with society. Our aim is to teach students to penetrate in complex human and environmental processes and make syntheses on the long-term change. As a result, the discipline gives competence to various occupations, especially, if it is coupled with appropriate minors.
