​Welcome to Cultural Hist​ory! 

​Established in 1972, we are one of the oldest departments in Europe and the only one in Finland to offer a full academic degree (BA, MA and PhD) in Cultural History. Cultural History is a specific way of looking into the past. We consider it a given that culture consists of human actions, deeds, habits and thoughts. Hence cultural history does not focus merely on high or elite culture, but equal importance is given to studying everyday life, different ways of thinking, the aspirations and emotions of people from all walks of life.​
