Course Information

The History MA is taught on a full-time and part-time basis, with the opportunity to complete in one and two years respectively. The year is split into three trimesters.

You will develop the skills necessary to understand, critique, utilise and communicate concepts and theories used within the discipline of History. You will acquire methodological skills for historical research, particularly the selection, evaluation and interpretation of primary sources.

The course comprises 120 credits of taught modules and a 60 credit dissertation. Students must take the History Research Methods module and complete a dissertation. The remainder of the programme is made up from a selection of specialist modules (normally three 30 credit modules) which reflect staff research expertise.
