Course summary

Course Overview

The MA History course consists of broad, thematic taught modules that focus on the middle ages through to present day.

Offering a flexible approach to study, this course incorporates five core modules which mix conventional historical study with training in research methods and the close consideration of the big interpretative questions animating the study of history today. A particular strength of the course is the way in which it familiarises students with digital history projects and contemporary debates.

In addition to the taught modules you will also complete a dissertation under the supervision of one of our specialist historians.

Throughout your studies you will have access to our leading learning facilities and you will be welcome at academic events and seminars hosted by the new Institute of the Humanities. This includes the fortnightly History Research Seminar, where we welcome historians from throughout the world to show us their latest research.

Master of Research opportunity

If you already have quite a clear idea about a particular topic you’d like to explore, or you’re interested in a research-based career, then you might want to consider our History MRes.

Your Future

Your previous qualifications and the specialist nature of this course will provide a strong foundation for your future work or study.

The MA History course has been designed to form the basis for those wishing to progress to PhD level and we offer advice in writing PhD and funding applications should you decide to take this route.

The broad range of skills and knowledge acquired on this course can help to enhance promotion prospects in many professions, most notably teaching, professional research, museums or archives, public policy and project management. It should also enhance your prospects of employment should you wish to move into such vocations.

You will also leave prepared for a career as a researcher or employment within a broader business environment.
