The main goal of the minor field program in History is to provide an overview of the historical periods from classical antiquity to the 20th century, the ability to take a critical stance on the past and its interpretations and portrayals, insight into how history has shaped the development and conditions of contemporary society, an in-depth understanding for the otherness of past and foreign living environments through the study of the diachronic development of various cultures, and the ability to engage in networked thinking. The course of study also enables students to develop research questions on their own, conduct independent research, reflect critically on different research positions on concrete topics, and, most importantly, to employ the methods, critical approaches, and tools of the historian.

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
