Course summary

Taught by leading scholars across a range of periods and geographies, our MA History programme seeks to satisfy your curiosity about history while deepening your knowledge of its key concepts and methods as a discipline.

As an MA History student at Cardiff University, you will benefit from the opportunity to explore a variety of approaches to study of the past – social, cultural, intellectual, political – across a broad chronological and geographic range.

Our academic interests span British, Welsh, European (including Central and Eastern Europe, and Russia), Asian, and North American histories from the medieval to the modern period. The extensive range of our expertise enables you to develop your own particular research interests and to pursue modules that allow you to develop and extend these.

We appreciate that career and employability prospects are important to you, and we are committed to supporting you with life after University. As such, we offer two optional modules with employability in mind.

And we pride ourselves on our flexible, student-centred approach to training, including time spent learning outside the university environment. Uniquely, we offer a flexible dissertation route. This means that you have the choice between a traditional dissertation, where you have the opportunity to flex your practical research skills and develop your own original research contribution, or you can choose to complete a public engagement project. The first of its kind in the UK, this innovative project will enable you to draw on your own experience to demonstrate the importance of history in the wider community.
