Course summary

Welcome to MA History

This rigorous Master's programme is designed to develop students' specialist knowledge of history alongside advanced research skills that are transferable to a variety of careers paths, including PhD study.

Students can specialize in the history of gender and sexuality, media history, global history, early modern or contemporary British history, or pursue a general programme of study instead. Through cumulative research, students can develop the relevant skills and an enhanced capacity for informed citizenship, critical thinking, and simple awareness.

The city of Lincoln is rich in history and heritage making it the perfect setting in which to conduct history research. Students can benefit from the historical resources available in the city, including an extensive archive of materials at the on-campus Media Archive of Central England (MACE), the International Bomber Command Centre, and The Wren Library at Lincoln Cathedral which houses several thousand early modern books.

How You Are Assessed

A variety of forms of assessment are used during this programme, including research projects, essays, public engagement projects, presentations, book reviews, portfolios, and the 15,000-20,000 word dissertation.

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly usually within 15 working days of the submission date (unless stated differently above).

Career Opportunities

The skills and knowledge acquired from studying history are valued by many professions. This programme aims to develop the advanced knowledge and expert research skills valued in both the public and private sectors.

As effective writers and communicators, historians can go on to careers in journalism, communications, and marketing. Research and organisation skills produce outstanding librarians, information managers, and researches, while many historian graduates also go on to complete additional study to become lawyers, diplomats, and public officials.
