Bakalauro studijų programos

IST kiaTarptautiniai ekspertai labai gerai įvertino Istorijos ir Kultūros istorijos ir antropologijos bakalauro studijų programas. Ekspertai pabrėžė, kad naujoji modulinė studijų sistema atspindi modernią universitetinių studijų paradigmą. Abi programos pasižymi labai aukštos kvalifikacijos dėstytojų komanda, kurioje bendradarbiauja fakulteto ir kitų tyrimo institucijų ar savo sričių profesionalai, o studentams suteikiamos puikios mokymosi sąlygos bei pasirinkimo galimybės, ugdomos praktinės kompetencijos. Praėjusiais metais taip pat gerai buvo įvertinta ir Archeologijos bakalauro programa.
Ekspertų nuomone Istorijos bakalauro programa pasižymi europinės bei lokalios istorijos derinimu, puikiu studentų, kaip ateities profesionalų ruošimu. Kultūros istorijos ir antopologijos programos skiriamasis bruožas yra jos tarpdiscipliniškumas, įvairių teorinių ir praktinių tyrimo metodų dermė, dėmesys atminties, žodinės istorijos studijoms bei mikro ir makro istorijoms.

EXAMPLES OF EXCELLENCE (History programme)
1. In terms of reputation, the Faculty of History is recognised as having the best provision for educating students in the discipline in Lithuania. University teachers are made up of extremely well-qualified staff not only from the University Faculty, but also by historians who are the nation‘s leading professionals in their fields of enquiry working in the city‘s research institutes. Students therefore have the benefit of being able to experience learning in modules that are almost all directly based on research-informed teaching.
2. Students have the unrivalled benefit of having access to excellent facilities to support their learning, both within the University in its various library collections, computer terminals and large body of expert staff; and also in the city‘s many museums, archives, other repositories and the richness of its local built environment and heritage. Their skill sets in relation to developing as history practitioners are therefore, by the end of their programme, very good indeed and this is recognised by a broad spectrum of stakeholders and professions, who hold the degree in high esteem and regard the Faculty‘s graduates as eminently employable.
3. The implemented module system has introduced quality changes in teaching and staff co-operation. It reflects a modern approach to university education.

3. The Programme is notable for its interdisciplinary study and outlook, stressing interpretation more and research less, focusing relatively less on primary sources and more on theoretical and historiographical approaches, on continuity (identity, memory, oral history), defining notions, processes, and phenomena, and understanding of micro and macro histories (the study of nationalism, anthropological methods, and civilisations).
