This exciting postgraduate programme equips students with appropriate skills and techniques in History. It incorporates five key elements: one core module, three specialist options and an individually supervised dissertation.
While focusing upon history, the programme also examines the relationship of history to cognate disciplines. It develops skills of analysis and communication, which are of relevance to a wide range of occupations whilst providing the opportunity to study and apply recent developments in the field at an advanced level.
Students will have the opportunity to partake in archive trips and sessions, and the university regularly welcomes external speakers.
The team is committed to excellence in research and constitutes a strong research grouping. The MA History degree allows staff to offer modules in areas in which they boast particular expertise. Students benefit from this in terms of the enthusiasm and the authority of the teaching that they receive, and in that they are the recipients of research-informed teaching.
