Course summary

Overview

Our MRes programme provide a personalised and focused introduction to postgraduate research allowing you to develop as an independent researcher with the support of an expert in Archives.

It provides a rigorous overview of the current state of scholarship in your selected field, guides you, through a programme of directed, individualised reading, to the selection of a feasible research project, and allows you to complete a substantial piece of research.

Why Archives and Records?

Academic staff working in the research area of archive studies have extensive professional experience with strong international links as well as academic expertise. Their research interests range from medieval record keeping to contemporary public policy and open government.

Archive Studies is located in the department of History and the School of Histories, Languages and Cultures. Recent conferences and workshops on recordkeeping topics have included ‘The Local Record Office, past, present and future’, ‘Archives and Deaf Communities’, ‘Time in the Archives’, and an international conference on ‘Records, archives and technology: interdependence over time’.

Career prospects

Our programmes are designed to provide students with a wide range of transferable skills. Our History taught programmes are designed to meet the training requirements of the AHRC and the ESRC and thus to equip you for further study towards an MPhil/PhD. However, our MA students go into a wide range of professions, including media, public sector management, business consultancy, the civil service, NGO and development work, as well as academia.
