Course summary

Overview

Explore contrasting periods of history using different historical and interdisciplinary approaches that will develop your critical awareness and research skills. Become a true historian, able to sustain arguments and solve problems, with a richer understanding of how history is communicated to the wider public, and how it helps us address present-day issues.

On our MA History, you will learn to critically examine different periods of history - including social, cultural, political and public history - and conduct original research at both local and global levels.

Assessment

You will encounter a range of assessment methods on the course, including essays, reports, source analysis and assessed presentations. These will allow you to engage with the ideas and knowledge taught on each module, but also to think about how History is changing.

The assessment for each module will require you to undertake original research using the research methods built into it.

Careers

The skills you develop on our MA History will transfer across a range of careers, as well as providing a gateway to PhD research.

By exploring how to make the past available to a wider public, you will open up careers in the heritage industry, archives and museums.

You will also become an independent learner, able to manage your own projects and research in a confident and flexible manner, devise and sustain arguments and solve problems successfully.

Such skills are transferable to careers in teaching, business, journalism, television, radio, the music industry, arts administration, digital media, gallery work, fundraising, personnel work, publishing, librarianship, marketing, local authority work, publicity, social work, tourism and IT-related industries. You will also gain Intermediate awards: PG Cert, PG Dip.
