Course summary

This course is designed to give you the opportunity to develop your specialist knowledge of history alongside advanced research skills that are transferable to a variety of careers paths, including PhD study. Teaching is informed by research expertise in the School of History and Heritage and you will be encouraged to engage with our interdisciplinary research community. You have the option to follow three distinct pathways, in the history of gender and sexuality, media history, or contemporary British history, or pursue a general programme of study instead. You can benefit from the historical resources available in the city of Lincoln, including an extensive archive of materials at the on-campus Media Archive of Central England (MACE) and at the International Bomber Command Centre. The Wren Library at Lincoln Cathedral houses several thousand early modern books. You will have the opportunity to undertake an in-depth independent research project and have the chance to produce a detailed dissertation. Career and Personal Development: This programme aims to develop the advanced knowledge and high-level research skills that may be highly valued in the heritage and museum sectors, teaching and research roles. Some graduates progress to doctoral study and a career in academia. Careers Service: The University Careers and Employability Team offer qualified advisors who can work with you to provide tailored, individual support and careers advice during your time at the University. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert.
