Course content

A flexible programme that offers you the opportunity to specialise in your area of interest, this MA allows you to take your studies and passion for history to the next level.

The course will help you develop the sophisticated analytical skills to understand the past in a more nuanced way. You will be taught in small groups in a stimulating environment and have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of fascinating and challenging history modules, many that are unavailable at undergraduate level.

The modules offered reflect the extensive and world-leading research expertise of staff within the Department of History.

All of the taught modules in the MA are based upon the research specialisms of staff within the department, including Modern (particularly 20th-century international) History, British History, Gender History and Medieval History. Students have a free choice of options.
