Course summary

What makes the MA History programme at Worcester special?

Our History Masters degree allows you to explore a range of new themes that build on your existing historical knowledge, such as scientific change and the growth of environmentalism. You will gain practical, hands-on experience with the recovery and digital editing of historical documents.

You will undertake a special study of the relationship between history and the modern mass media, including print culture, the impact of film, radio, and television, analysing the significance of the media for historians, and researching themes such as media and identities, political propaganda, and the representation of the past.

The degree culminates in an independent Dissertation, in which you specialise in a theme of your own choosing, and work with individual guidance from an academic expert to produce a piece of ambitious historical research.

Key features

  • Critically evaluate the historical impact of the mass media, and phenomena such as state censorship and propaganda
  • Study exciting contemporary themes such as the influence of medical science on political and social change
  • Develop your critical and research expertise, while working alongside nationally and internationally acknowledged subject experts and gain experience presenting your work at a postgraduate conference.
  • Enhance your research skills to postgraduate standard, equipping you for professional research or application for doctoral study
  • Work-based learning and career planning are embedded in the course and complement the transferable skills provided by historical study
  • Gain a comprehensive grounding in interdisciplinary research methods
  • A flexible course structure with ample opportunity to specialise and develop new interests
