Course content

Our MA History master's course enables you to tailor your postgraduate studies to suit your interests.

Your focus could be chronological (medieval, early modern or modern), geographical (European, transnational, international) or methodological (cultural or economic and social history).

Alternatively, you can create a wide-ranging course for yourself by choosing units from a variety of areas, including thematic course units that transcend orthodox boundaries to facilitate intellectual breadth and imagination.

You will undertake robust theoretical and methodological training while also having the opportunity to develop transferable skills for employment through the work placement, Public History and documentary filmmaking units.

You will become an integrated member of the research community with the chance to engage with outstanding researchers, resources and facilities.

We have over 30 members of staff with world-class expertise in medieval, early modern and modern history, stretching across national and international boundaries, with strong representation in economic, social and cultural approaches to history.
