The Department of History offers research-based Masters degrees to both full-time and part-time students in a wide range of subjects chosen from the faculty's fields of interest.
This degree is particularly aimed at individuals who wish to developed advanced research skills either as a prelude to a research-based career or are interested in training to be an academic.
Unlike a taught Masters degree, students taking an MA by Research will focus entirely on developing an extended dissertation of up to 40,000 words in length - over the course of a year for full-time students or two years for part-time students.
Operating under the close guidance of a personal supervisor, Research Masters students first design an individual research agenda, then conduct extensive primary and secondary investigations before writing up their findings.
