The MA in History provides you with the opportunity to pursue an extensive range of historical topics and will equip you with advanced research skills. The course will allow you to expand the breadth of your historical knowledge by selecting from options which have a wide chronological range and international scope.

You will develop a thorough grounding in research methods and learn about the key theoretical traditions that have influenced the writing of history in the 20th century through our core options of Historical Research Methods and History and Social Theory. Our range of option modules within Medieval, Early Modern and Modern History will allow you to gain an in-depth knowledge of a number of specific aspects of the past.

This degree will equip you with the necessary training and experience to continue research at doctoral level and will enhance your attractiveness to employers. You will be encouraged to develop an independent approach to learning and critical reflection.

Our MA is divided equally between two core research training modules and two option modules selected from a list, plus a 15,000-20,000 word dissertation. The course can also be studied part-time over two years.
