Course summary

Overview

This taught MA offers a wide-ranging introduction to higher level study in social and cultural history. Covering a number of critical areas of historical work the programme will help you to develop and enhance your skills as a research historian. This is an opportunity to deepen your passion for the past through fascinating modules that engage with new and emerging research, approaches and debates.

About The Course

Studying the history of everyday life in depth is not only fascinating but also incredibly rewarding. This Masters degree combines taught modules on a series of captivating topics with individual research work. Aspects of social and cultural history underpin most historical study and this course covers a wide range of subject areas, which may include crime and order, wealth and poverty, religion and conflict, art and culture.

History at BGU is not just understood through documents, but through a dynamic consideration of words, images, buildings and artefacts. We make excellent use of archives and museums in the ancient city of Lincoln which tell the city’s 2,000 year history from Roman foundation to its industrial renaissance in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In addition, the library and online resources for History at BGU are excellent. Within the library there is a dedicated room housing the Lincolnshire Collection, which contains books on Lincolnshire history, archaeology and architecture. These materials, and many other resources, are used to support teaching and learning on particular modules and are available for students undertaking research.

Careers & Further Study

This MA is preparation for professions that depend on advanced skills in research, analysis, critical argument and communication. Specific abilities in archival research and advanced historical methodologies support students in a range of career choices, from further academic study to heritage-related employment.

An MA in History need not result in a career specifically tied to the subject; it equips students with excellent organisational, project-management, and analytical skills sought-after in sectors such as journalism, law, administration and public policy.
