Course summary

Postgraduate Certificate History is rigorous, flexible and wide-ranging, so that you have the freedom to choose the modules which best suit your interests. This course consists of the same choice of modules and assessed work as our MA History, without the dissertation element.

Alongside four optional modules which enable you to explore the latest in historical research in our specialist areas, you also study a practical module in research techniques.

Historical research at Essex concentrates on the period from 1500 to the present and covers a wide geographical area that includes British and European history, as well as Latin America, the USA, China, Russia and Africa.

Your future

We have excellent links with the research community, both in the UK and worldwide, so many of our students 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.
