2 1. ECTS General Introduction Within the SOCRATES / Erasmus exchange program, the European Credit Transfer System is a means to award course and examination results acquired during a study visit in other European countries. It also enables the home university to easily recognize the achievements. This set of criteria is based on co-operation agreements as well as bi- or multilateral contracts between the participating universities. These contracts ensure an adequate transparency of course syllabus and student experiences. The System of Credit Transfer is characterized by the following guidelines: On a basis of 60 points per annum, i.e. 30 per term, each course receives a definite number of credit points. However, these points are not aimed to assess student achievements, but to describe the quota of work students have to summon up for this class. It is on the responsibility of the respective university to provide an information package containing all ECTS relevant courses. In preparation of the academic exchange the student, his / her host and home university agree on a contact (Learning Agreement) which guarantees the mutual recognition of the academic assessments and defines the study program of the stay. It is of course possible to modify this program after the arrival at the host university to suit the given circumstances. At the end of the stay, the student receives certificate of his achieved results in form of the Transcript of Records containing the respective course description and achieved credit points. This procedure is intended to the replacing of a comparable period of the studies. 1. Towards the subject of History 1.1.

6 At present 1100 students are registered at the department of History (Oct. 2003). It is part of the faculty of History and Cultural Studies. The common object of research underlying the different subjects of this faculty, deals with changes in human ways of life, especially with those concerning society, culture, economy and politics. Studies in History and Culture aim at sharpening the ability to perceive such changes, while providing critical instruments for their comprehension, analysis, and evaluation at the same time. In times of accelerated global changes, the significance of a scientific treatment of human history is continuously increasing. The new structure of the faculty promotes in a close co-operation of the individual departments, which is expressed in the common curriculum and projects of research The Scientific Profile of the Subject History Ancient History devotes itself to the social, political and economical developments of the Mediterranean region and its contacts to the Near East and Egypt in the eastern as well as the celtic-germanic region in the western part. The period being considered ranges from the early archaic times (about 1000 BC) to late antiquity (about 650 AD) The access to these areas is enabled by the study of various historical sources. Traditional literary sources serve as the classical starting point of this research and are continuously and considerably replenished by Greek and Latin inscriptions and Papyri. These documents allow an immense progress in the areas of education and research, because they impart information from a wide spectrum in the areas of politics, religion, and social relations, which literary sources do not provide. In research projects, the department of Ancient History depends on the co-operation with the departments of Classical Philology and Archaeology, Pre- and Early History, early ecclesiastical history, history of law and those disciplines dealing with the contact-zone of the Graeco-Roman world. Within this work of research, the main emphasis of Ancient History lies on the ancient, particularly the economic history during the Principate. In this regard both close connections with the papyrological departments of Heidelberg, Köln, Amsterdam and Leiden and diverse projects of research with other universities are carried out. Another research area of Ancient History centres on the political history of Greece, Macedonia in particular. Furthermore, the contacts between Rome and Greece are as well reflected in Marburg as the Roman provincial politics in the eastern part of the Empire, ancient forms of rule, imperialism and topics concerning social conflicts and early Christianity. 6

7 Aside from university-intern projects, the department of Ancient History also participates in projects of international significance. Dealing with Greek Epigraphics constitutes a further aspect of ancient historical work of research. The Inscriptiones Graecae (BBAW), a project with international significance of which Prof. Errington is in charge since 2000, is certainly the most important in this area. The project Humanities in the Third Reich ( ) led by the Universities of Irvine (California) and Princeton is likewise of international character. Further contacts exist with the University of Iasi (Romania). Beyond this, the department prepares for an application for the DFG project Wissenschaft und Wissenschaftspolitik. Bestandsaufnahme zu Formation, Brüchen und Kontinuität im Deutschland des 20. Jahrhunderts concerning the theme antiquity science in change. With regard to multimedial research methods, an area of future significance, the department of Ancient History organized the meeting of the work group History and EDV (AGE) Historical databases and Multimedia which was recently held in Marburg. The period of Medieval History approximately ranges from BC, corresponding the period from the end of the Roman Empire to the discovery of the New World. In Marburg, the department of Medieval History is aiming at being established as a historical cultural science. In this connection, the term culture should be understood as a description of the variety of concepts, mentalities, and norms with which the world and its history are perceived and interpreted by individuals and groups, while the entirety of ways of lives is as well included as all kinds of human behaviour and acting. Focusing on Europe, including relations to non-european regions as given during the time of the crusades, the Institute of Medieval History occupies itself first and foremost with the constitutional and social history as well as the political history and the history of ideas. Within this research, functions and types of rule in the early Middle Ages are analyzed with respect to communication processes between ruler and counsellor, while theories and methods of historiography are also considered. In this context, various special projects should be mentioned, which partly are served by the chair of the departments Political History and the History of Ideas. These projects include: Working in the Middle Ages (Gerda-Henkel-Stiftung); Rule as Advice: provider, forms and functions of political advice in the Middle Ages (DFG); participation in the DFG-research course of lectures Portraits of Human Beings and their Functions of Orientation ; edition of the pontifical chancellery reglements in the late Middle Ages (Schweizerischer Nationalfonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung) as well as the Regesti notarili lucchesi del Duecento (Istituto storico lucchese). 7

8 This extensive field of research demands forms of interdisciplinary co-operation like the establishment of the working group Marburger Mittelalterzentrum (MMZ). The conceptional and practical development of this organization is suppported intensively by the Faculty of Medieval History. With regard to future projects, it is important to mention the establishment of an international Graduiertenkolleg in cooperation with the University of Vienna as well as the involvement of the department of Medieval History in the research project Medieval European Coinage, carried out in cooperation with the Fitzwilliam Museum and the British Academy. The cooperation with the Istituto Storico Lucchese has been carried out within the scope of several editorial projects for a long time. The period of Modern History begins chronologically around 1500 when significant changes newly shaped the conception of the world in the course of humanism, reformation, and discoveries. The department is divided into the field of Early Modern History, containing the period between 1500 and 1815, and New Modern History, ranging from the 19 th century up to the present. With regard to recent developments of world politics since 1989/90, Marburg will develop further into a centre of scientific exchanges and teaching in this field. The history of international relations, questions about the relations between war and peace, freedom and rule as well as between the nation-state and integration are central topics of this scientific exchange. To achieve new historical processes and structures, it is not only necessary to substitute old orthodoxies of the 1960s and 1980s by new ones, but also to critically analyse and reflect about the effects of older historiography. Therefore, the main emphasis of Modern History in Marburg lies on the comtemplation of political history and international relations and is not limited by any means. It is even eminent to take further fields such as Cultural Studies and History of Society into consideration. The interdisciplinary connection with the Social and Economic History of late Modern Age is of great significance in this context. In view of the increasing internationalisation of history and the emphasis on Middle- and West-European as well as North American history in Marburg, a strive for a closer cooperation with the departments of East-European History, the East Asian History, the representatives of Political Sciences, the Ecclesiastical History and History of Religion as well as with the Jurisprudence is more and more necessary. 8

9 Additionally, the main emphases are put on the history of pre-reformation times and of Humanism as well as on the Reformation and the confessional era. The Political Imperial history, the history of Scandinavia and Britain in the early Modern Age, the history of Political Theories, German and West European history from 1500 up to the present and the German and European History of nobility are also part of the curriculum at Marburg. Furthermore, the Resistance in the Third Reich, the history of the USA and Canada as well as of Australia and New Zealand, the Jewish history in the German Kaiserreich, Spanish history (concentrated on the 20 th century), the transatlantic relations since World War II, the history of the Federal Republic of Germany and the history of European integration are treated at Philipps-University. Future projects will correspond on intensification of research contacts to Great Britain, France (Paris/Sorbonne) and Canada (University of Toronto). Regularly upheld colloquia concerning the international relations in New Modern History are intended to support new generations of research. East European History deals with the historical regions of Southeast and East Middle Europe as well as the former Soviet Union (Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States) and covers the periods from the Middle Ages to present time. In the context of the Eastern extension of the EU the significance of the East European History continuously increases since it not only concerns Byzantian and Osmanian traditions, but also deals with the often radical formation of nations, while also aiming at dealing adequately with East European communism in its historical context. In this context, the central focus lies on the History of the Soviet Union, the Social History of the end of the Czar kingdom, the circumstances of Southeast Europe in the 20 th century as well as the occupation with national theories. Research is supplied and supported by the co-operation with institutes like the Herder Institute in Marburg, which specializes in East- and Middle East European concerns, the Lomonossow University in Moscow, the University of Veliko Tarnovo in Bulgaria, the School of Slavic and East European Studies in London and the Historical Seminar of the University of Waterloo (Canada). Contacts between several East European institutes are also promoted by scholarship holder programs carried like Humboldt-stays, those offered by the DAAD or DFG-supported scholarships. The Social and Economic History deals with the developments within the European area, but also enlarges its field of research with regard to the progress of European unification and 9

10 globalization to international questions. The considered period covers the time from the late Middle Ages to the present. The department of Social- and Economic History is furthermore a leading institute in the German speaking area with regard to its research of age and old-age pension. In addition, the University of Marburg co-operates with the Hessian Wirtschaftarchiv, which is the only institution concerned with the Hessian Economic History. Additionally, the History of enterprises with a special regard to the history of assurance and banking is as well considered as the globalization and internationalization of assurance economy in the 19 th and 20 th century. Corresponding the multitude of themes which are part of both disciplines, the department is subdivided into Social History and Economic History. The former concentrates on questions about society, gender, family, generation, everyday life, culture as wells as the history of population and mentality whereas the Economic History deals with the consideration of agrarian, trade, industry, banking, traffic and enterprise history. Furthermore, the history of technic, dogma and economic politics are of high importance. Research considering globalization and internationalization of the assurance economy in the 19 th and 20 th century, which is led by Marburg, is carried out in co-operation with institutes in the USA, Great Britain, Japan, France, Italy as well as the Netherlands. In addition, other projects are planned with China, Russia and Spain. Further connections are held with the Research Centre of Personal Scripts, a Marburg section of the Academy of Science and the Literatur zu Mainz, which digitally catalogues and edits funeral orations for various disciplines Libraries and Equipment Apart from the use of the University Library (UB), which offers among other things computer-aided access to literature search systems, students have the additional possibility to use the individual departmental libraries. The libraries of the departments Archaeology, Preand Early History, Ancient History, the Japanese-Centre and the Sinology are situated in the respective departments, while the library Geschichtswissenschaften consisting of the departments Medieval History, Historical Contemplementary Science, Hessisches Landesamt für geschichtliche Landeskunde, Modern History, Social and Economic History and East European History can be found in the 6 th, 7 th, and 8 th floor of the Tower C in the Philosophical Faculty. 10

11 The departmental library of Ancient History offers with a stock of approximately volumes additionally broadened by 33 current magazines and diverse acquisitions of new books, a slide collection of about transparencies and a multimedial collection, which is still in progress, a sound basis for research especially in the fields of Greek and Roman history, the reception history of antiquity, as well as economical history. Additionally, the library is in charge of an extensive collection of Greek and Latin inscriptions unique in Marburg. The library is open Monday to Thursday from 8 am 6 pm and Fridays from 8 am to 3 pm. In the library Geschichtswissenschaften approximately volumes of the above mentioned departments are available on three floors. This offer is enlarged by about 600 current magazines, 3700 slides, 6940 maps as well as 4860 offprints. For purposes of research the user has access to manual card indexes as well as 14 PC places. The library is open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 8 pm. As library of the oldest Protestant University (1527) the UB has an extensive old stock of approximately works at its disposal, and additionally covers dissertations and further higher educational works. The stock of the UB includes about 1, 9 Mio. volumes and is searchable by online-catalogues of the local library system by the following address: The annual increase of works is about Inside the university, there is a possibility for all students to use several PC rooms (word processing and more). Anybody who additionally wishes to use the Internet is required to apply for a special Internet account, available for an extra charge at the Hochschulrechenzenrum (HRZ). With the fitting-out of a new pc-room on the 3 rd floor of the C tower, students have additionally access to 22 computer supported places and are offered the opportunity to use their notebooks. A schedule with the respective using times is available on the spot (pc-room GWS-C - History 3 rd floor of the C tower and GWS-M - Foyer of the Philosophischen Fakultät) or at Duration and Completion of Studies Duration of Studies Start of Lectures End of Lectures Winter Term In the middle of Octobre In the middle of February 11 Summer Term In the middle of April End of July

12 Average Duration of Studies 9 terms (including term of examination) Completions of Studies state examination intended for high school teaching Masters Doctorate / PhD Structure of Studies (Masters, major) The use of the appropriate languages is one of the main requirements to approach former and foreign cultures adequately. For this reason, it is essential to attain knowledge of the following languages: Ancient History Medieval History Modern History Easteuropean History Social and Economic History Latin (to the extent of the Latinum), Ancient Greek (to the extent of the Graecum), and French Latin (to the extent of the Latinum), Middle High German as well as two modern languages (one should be English or French) Latin (to the extent of the examination in Latin), English, and French Latin (can be replaced by a second western foreign language in exceptional cases), one East European language, another foreign language Latin (to the extent of the Latinum), English, and French Ideally, one should have aquired these skills before beginning to study. However, it is possible to gain the sufficient knowledge of the necessary languages in the course of study, but the knowledge should be proven when the student applies for his intermediate examination. 12

13 SWS Amount of hours to be completed during a term per week. Ex.: During a term you attend a twohour lecture. This will be graded as 2 SWS. The number of SWS has to be considered in the context of the entire Intermediate, resp. Advanced Level and does not indicate their managing within one single term. Ex.: You have to absolve 32 SWS in your Intermediate Level. This is the sum of the entire sessions within your Intermediate Level. The possible combination of subjects within the group History is restricted to two, that is major / minor (HF/NF), resp. minor / minor (NF/NF). The average duration of studies amounts 9 terms, including the examination period. The course of study is subdivided into Intermediate Level (1 st and 2 nd academic year) and Advanced Level (3 rd and 4 th academic year) and contains 68 SWS in one s major and 34 SWS in one s minor subject. The Intermediate Level is aimed to represent the main periods of history and to familiarize the students with the main themes and methods of working. This introduction is intended to lead students up to dealing critically and scientifically with sources and enable them to work autonom and independently. The Intermediate Level contains in one s major 32 SWS, in the minor subject 18 SWS and covers in consideration of the chosen major all main periods of history. Within the 32 SWS the student has to complete three (marked) credits ( Scheine ) out of three introductory seminars ( Proseminare ) that shall ideally cover the three main periods of history (6 SWS altogether). Furthermore, one has to achieve one credit (unmarked) in one a practical excercise (2 SWS) in the chosen major subject. The remaining 24 SWS are to be chosen in a way that the following sessions are covered: Participation in the lecture Introduction to the study of history (2 SWS) as well as at least one lecture in the main periods of history, namely Ancient, Medieval and Modern History. Further lectures to the extention of 16 SWS can be chosen freely. The successfully conclusion of an introductory seminar presupposes the fulfilment of criteria, being announced by the leader of class in a suitable manner. In general, they may consist of the following assessments: regular attendance and active participation in class, short written assignment(s), reports or short presentations, an oral presentation, submission of a research paper to the extention of pages (As a substitution it is possible to write a final exam instead of a research paper, except for the introductory seminar in the chosen major). 13

14 The Intermediate Level concludes with the intermediate examination ( Zwischenprüfung ) and should ideally amount four terms. Not included is the period of time being necessary to achieve the required language skills. The intermediate examination consists of a two-hour essay or alternatively a 30-minute oral examination about the subject of one completed course (introductory seminar, lecture or middle seminar). Courses which the student concluded with a final examination are the only exceptions. The Advanced Level, consisting of 36 SWS, requires two credits from two advanced seminars ( Hauptseminare ) in the chosen major (altogether 4 SWS), one credit from an advanced seminar of one further historical subject (2 SWS) and one credit from a middle seminar (2 SWS) in the chosen major. The remaining 28 SWS are to be taken as follows: Attendance at lectures in the chosen major to the extent of 10 SWS and lectures in at least two further historical subjects to the extent of 10 SWS. The attendance of further classes to the extent of 8 SWS can be chosen freely. The successful completion of a middle seminar requires criteria as follows: Regular and active participation in class and leading of one oral presentation. The participation in an advanced seminar is regarded as successfully if the following requirements are fulfilled: regular and active participation in class, distinguished by appropriate preparation, leading of one oral presentation as well as submission of one written research paper to the extent of 25 pages. Participation in study trips and periods of practical work experiences in the form of a Praktikum are optional but recommended. The Advanced Level is completed with the Magisterprüfung and should also amount four terms. The Magisterprüfung includes the writing of the Magisterarbeit within a period of six months. After that the student has to take a four-hour written examination in both major and minors, considering the main emphasises of the subject. Furthermore, the student has to pass an oral examination lasting one hour in the major and 30 minutes in each minor subject. In exceptional cases, it is possible to achieve the grundständige Promotion Characterization of Courses Lecture (2 SWS) Presentation of a particular topic or period of time based on the current developments in the research of this area. The course is directed towards all students and should be supplied by additional reading. The purpose of lectures is not only to listen to the lecturer, but to prompt students to make enquiries about rising questions and to encourage them to study independently and critically reflect. 14

15 Seminar In seminars, the student is offered the possibility to learn and use scientific working methods. Seminars are generally subdivided into introductory seminars, middle seminars and advanced seminars. While the introductory seminar mainly addresses students in their Intermediate Level, while middle seminars are open to both students in their Intermediate and Advanced Level. Since advanced seminars require the conclusion of the intermediate examination, they are mainly directed to students in their Advanced Level. o Introductory Seminar (2 SWS) This course (PS) offers a good opportunity to familiarize oneself with the different parts of historical science and its working methods. Students have to participate in one introductory seminar in each period of history. Apart from the decisive theme of the seminar, a period of time is spend on imparting skills in dealing with sources, common reference books and scientifical literature. Furthermore, the student is familiarized with the formal techniques of written papers, i.e. The achieved skills are consolidated and practised by assignments like oral presentations and the writing of shorter scientifical works. o Middle Seminar (2 SWS) The middle seminar (MS) is often freer than the introductory or the advanced seminar. Orientated on specific questions or sources it is intended to deepen the already achieved knowledge in a historical area and to improve the reading skills of sources. Apart from active participation, the students are supposed to lead shorter oral presentations. o Advanced Seminar (2 SWS) The advanced seminar (HS) is directed to students who have already reached their Advanced Level with a successful intermediate examination, and have developed basic skills to work independently and scientifically. Within the scope of a concrete subject, students get the opportunity to critically reflect scientific questions and results of research with complex and scientific character. Apart from active participation, the leading of an oral presentation and submission of a research paper (in extensive manner) are presupposed for a successful completion of the seminar. 15

16 Practical Excercise (2 SWS) Similar to the middle seminar, the practical excercises also represents a freer kind of teaching. Through selected sources and their verification, comprehension concerning special fields as well as language skills is sharpened and methodical processeses are trained and deepened. Participation in practical excercises offers a good opportunity to develop one s own inclinations and emphasis. Apart from active participation, students are supposed to prepare for the individual lessons in an appropriate manner. Colloquium (often 2 SWS) The character of the colloquium (KO) can be described as a scientific conversation between teacher and student marked by the critical analysis of scientific questions. The colloquium is often held in connection with lectures and offers the opportunity to discuss questions arisen during the respective lecture. Furthermore, the colloquium gives students the opportunity to discuss single works in further detail in order to prepare for the examination. Research Seminar The research seminar (FS) is intended to reach advanced students who achieve the possibility to use their gained knowledge. Generally, the participation is restricted to students who are able to read the original source in their corresponding original language Example for the Magisterstudiengang History (major) Intermediate Level Term Course SWS PS with marked credit in Ancient History 2 SWS Medieval History 2 SWS Modern History 2 SWS 1 UE with LN in the chosen major 2 SWS 1 VL for Introduction to the study of 2 SWS history Ancient History 2 SWS Medieval History 2 SWS Modern History 2 SWS (8) further courses to the extent of 16 SWS 32 SWS 16

With regard to the transfer of credits, this marking system is supplemented by relative ECTS-Grades (graded from A to E) in order to compare the results of students with each other. The award of both, an absolute, national and a relative, European mark helps to overcome the difficulties arising from a different system of marks among the national universities. The system is structured statically and is reflected in the following scale: A The best 10 % B The next 25 % C The next 30 % D The next 25 % E The next 10 % Summary of Courses The types of the distinctive courses are fixed. The arrangement of themes, which covers all periods, ensures the consideration of a broad spectrum of questions and problems. Courses of the following term are published in an annotated course catalogue (KVV) at the end of each term and can either be purchased or downloaded from the internet at 17

18 1.2. Credit Transfer System Award of Credit Points Because of the openly structured curriculum within the courses of study and the fact that ECTS credits can only be awarded for checkable results, the transfer of credit points takes place as follows: The total sum of all SWS in the Magisterstudiengang (major and minor) is 136 SWS in a period of 8 terms that is about 16 SWS per term. The required credits amount 16 in the entire period of study, which equals two per term. 30 credit points are awarded to the extent of 16 SWS for sessions per term. The requirements are compiled in the following table and show the respective awarding of credits points: Type LV Extent of Requirements Credits A PS, HS oral presentation and research paper 10 B MS, UE, KO, FS oral presentation or oral exam minutes or 5 shorter written assignment C VL, MS, UE, KO, oral exam minutes 2 FS Hence a structure of courses for each term results can be depicted with the following scheme: achievement of a marked credit of type A in an introductory or an advanced seminar to the extent of 2 SWS 2 marked credits of type B to the extent of 4 SWS 5 marked credits of type C to the extent of 10 SWS The depiction of the above mentioned aspects of credit transfer is to infer from the following presentation: Type LN Number Credits SWS A B C together: 30 together: 16 18
