Course content

MA by Research History is designed for students who have a passion to pursue a research project defined by themselves, but with the support of an academic environment and supervisors.

Members of staff in the School of History & Heritage are established or emerging as internationally recognised research leaders in their respective fields. They will enable you to conduct in-depth research into an area of your choice.

You will join a vibrant academic community with regular research seminars, such as the Humanities Research seminar series, 21st Century Research Group seminars and the Nineteenth Century Research Group seminars. Study takes the form of supervised individual research on a topic of your choice.
