Course content

Exploring themes in regional history which can be applied to any region and across a range of different periods.

North East Wales is currently under-represented in the historical record and this course presents students with a unique opportunity to highlight the cultural heritage of the region and the particular issues surrounding ‘border’ identity.

This programme will enable you to promote a public understanding of the past in today’s social, political and cultural life. It combines the intellectual strengths of History with modern, practical and transferable skills.

Our team have a proven track-record of student satisfaction and provide a supportive teaching environment.

This programme has been designed in collaboration with partners and links in the heritage sector, such as: Wrexham Museum, NE Wales Heritage Forum, Denbighshire Archives, Flintshire Archives, Palmer Centre, Gladstone Library, National Trust, Llangollen Museum and others.

The History department has a proven track record of student satisfaction and provides a supportive learning environment. The MA History builds upon these strengths and you will be encouraged to expand your research into themes across a range of chronological and geographical frameworks. Case studies will have a strong regional emphasis and will benefit from the expertise of staff and the pre-exisiting links with heritage professionals. Placements, fieldwork and networking opportunites will focus on the communication of history in modern society and the development of essential employablity skills.

There are four main modules which each have between 20-40 credits, followed by a 60 credit dissertation, making a total of 180 credits. All modules are core.
