Course summary

About the research degree

A Master's by Research (MA) allows you to undertake a one-year full time or two-year part time research degree. You will have one-to-one supervision by a specialist in the history of childhood and join regular Graduate History Seminars designed to enhance your research skills. Such programmes are attractive to those studying for personal interest, professional development or as preparation for a PhD.

What were children’s lives like in the past? Here in the History Department at the University of Huddersfield we are working with the curator of the children’s collections at Abbey House Museum and the staff of the Holocaust Education and Learning Centre to discover the experience of children in war and peace, at home and school, and as refugees or evacuees. Join the MA by Research in the History of Childhood in order to go behind the scenes of the museums for privileged access to their collections and take part in bespoke study days. Join us to find out more about what childhood artefacts can tell us about children’s experiences in the past and how to discover the traces of children’s lives in the archives. This course is ideal for those studying for personal interest, professional development or as preparation for a PhD and is led by specialists in the history of childhood in France and Britain.

“Children’s past lives and voices matter – your research will put them on the historical record,” Dr Lindsey Dodd, co-director of studies for the MA in the History of Childhood and author of French Children Under Allied Bombs, 1940-45: An Oral History.

“This Master’s by Research in the History of Childhood is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about using original sources and historic material, whilst giving you a chance to share your ideas and research with us,” Nicola Pullan, Assistant Curator, Abbey House Museum (Leeds Museums and Galleries).

At the end of the project you will write up your findings in the form of a short thesis of around 25,000 words, which will then be examined.

On successful completion, you will be awarded your degree and if you have enjoyed this taste of research you may then decide to apply for the full research doctoral degree (PhD).
