Course content

The new MA in History is innovative, creative, free-thinking, stimulating, diverse and challenging - everything that is distinctive about history at Goldsmiths.

The Department of History's approach is thematic and interdisciplinary, with staff expertise spanning the histories of Britain, East and West Europe, South Asia and Africa. Our focus is primary research and we encourage students to follow their own historical interests.

The MA in History aims to develop your research skills, and your understanding of key debates and methods in historiography. In addition, it allows you to develop their specific subject interests through a range of optional courses and the dissertation.

Consequently, in addition to the compulsory core course (Explorations and Debates) and the Research Skills course, you choose two options, one of which, if you wish, can be from another department at Goldsmiths or from the wide-ranging intercollegiate list (a list of MA courses available at other colleges of the University of London).
