Course content

Our MA course will allow you to build upon existing historical interests, while also acquiring new expertise in a range of exciting historical topics, and places great weight on key research techniques, helping you to develop and enhance the skills that historians use when approaching the past.

The MA in History is taught by a range of different historians, all of whom possess expertise in the latest historical theories and approaches. Our academics also have broad chronological and geographical interests, which help to make this both a stimulating and varied course.

You will be able to dip into the history of the Medieval and Early Modern periods or, if you so wish, explore more recent examples of the past. British, wider European and American history also feature prominently in the course, which confirms the Department’s belief in exploring the multiplicity and variety of history.
