Course content

Our MA in History will enable you to become independent, confident and digitally literate learners, thus improving your employability, by engaging in sophisticated analytical skills. The acquisition of an MA in History already demonstrates high levels of specialism, but you will gain this not only through the development of a range of transferable skills but with the inclusion of digital learning it will allow you to apply other key skills (such as creating digital portfolios, web development and data management). There will also be opportunities for you to contribute your own work to various forums, including our History programme seminar series.
