Course summary

We offer supervision for our MPhil in History in a range of topics from the period c.1500 to the present day, with particular focus on themes linked to our seven research clusters and three centres. Our research clusters cover several themes, including: Africa and its diaspora; early modern perspectives; cultures of class; women, gender and sexuality; health, medicine and community; political cultures and citizenship; and war, memory and life stories. We also house centres for Bibliographic History, Public History, and Digital History, enabling us to offer students additional expertise in these specific areas

We also have particular expertise in the following geographical areas: Britain (including local and regional history), Europe, the United States, Russia, Brazil, Southern Africa and Britain’s Asian Empire. We take pride in providing excellent research training and careful supervision in a friendly atmosphere, with good staff-student relationships.

We have excellent links with the research community, both in the UK and worldwide and many of our graduates have gone on to teach in higher education institutions. Others have found employment in archives, research, managing research funds, other forms of educational provision, the Civil Service, the National Health Service, and management.
