Course content

Explore and research the historical context of modern-day issues that transcend countries and cultures, from sustainability to global citizenship. MA History is led by a research-active teaching team that’s highly rated by students.

  • Through optional modules, research projects and self-directed study, you can choose to focus on the issues and case studies you find particularly interesting
  • You will get the opportunity to write pieces for public audiences, such as a digital resource, an industry-facing symposium presentation, and a public policy paper
  • This is an MA History for the digital age. You will consider how historians can engage different audiences through modern media, learn to interpret digital data, and use digital tools to undertake and present research. In addition, two modules are delivered entirely online
  • We’ll make sure you have an exceptional student experience, with more contact hours than most universities and staff that go the extra mile.
