Course content

Our MA programme is team-taught with a rich diversity of historical research. Many modules have an interdisciplinary focus, with an appeal to the specialisms of students with a variety of backgrounds in historically-oriented disciplines. A distinctive feature of the MA is the core module, Public History, exploring how history is communicated to a wider audience. This seeks to enhance employability, especially for those interested in pursuing history-related careers outside academia. You may also choose modules in other Humanities disciplines likely to improve your skills, especially in foreign languages such as French, German or Latin.

Core modules:
Research Skills and Historiography; Public History; Dissertation

Optional MA modules have recently included: Jerusalem: City and Symbol; The Medieval World; English Social and Cultural Life in the 18th Century; Slavery and the Atlantic World; War, Rebellion and Race in the Early American Republic; The Rise and Fall of the Habsburg Empire 1815–1918; Nehru’s India; Imperialism and Decolonisation; The Holocaust.
