Course content

Are you interested in taking your knowledge of history to a higher level?

Do you want to add to your repertoire of skills? Or maybe you want to continue your professional development?

This two-year distance learning programme offers you the opportunity to explore a number of historical themes, drawing on the Department of History’s broad range of expertise. You may pursue one of three pathways through the MA: Contemporary History; Global History; or Modern British Studies. This will determine your choice of core modules and the theme of your dissertation, but you also have the opportunity to study two optional modules in other areas which suit your particular interest.
