MA History combines the coherence and support of a taught MA with the challenges of a research degree. This makes it ideal for those wishing to pursue a historical interest beyond undergraduate level or as a preparation in research skills for those aspiring to PhD study.
Teaching on the course directly reflects the internationally recognised expertise of our staff that includes medieval and early modern British and European history; modern and contemporary history; public history and global history. Case studies include Crusades and Crusaders; Early Modern Religions and Cultures; Slavery, Race and Lynching; Memory, Genocide, Holocaust; Social History and ‘The Spatial Turn'.
The course is structured thematically around the core principles of historical study allowing you to gain the ability to apply this practical structure to your own unique historical interest area.
Throughout the course you will actively research, interpret, analyse, and write alongside our team of experts. The history team at NTU pride themselves on their accessible, student-centred approach to teaching and are available for one-to-one tutorial support and guidance. To further support your learning throughout the year we run a series of history and heritage workshops delivered by a wide range of visiting experts.
