    About the Programs

    MA History
    This is a flexible course which provides an opportunity for students to develop and expand upon their particular historical interests. Students will be able to take a broad range of options from inside and outside the department without specialising in a particular area. The options available reflect the research interests of staff and range from the study of the Asia-Pacific War to the history of the Environment to the Crusades. the module is suitable both for those who wish to further their interests at a level higher than undergraduates and for those who want to supplement their first degree with more detailed study.

    MA in History (Research)
    This course provides an opportunity for students to study specific areas of history in greater depth than at undergraduate level. Those with an interest in British History, Medieval History, Environmental History., Social and Cultural History, Islamic and Middle Eastern History, East Asian History and Contemporary History will benefit from the school's expertise in those areas. Students undertake a mixture of compulsory and optional modules which reflect their interests and are given training for further research work or other professional careers. Those wishing to apply for this course should also consider applying to the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Research Preparation Master's Scheme.

    About the School

    The School of History is one of the leading centres for the study of History in the UK. It was recently given the highest rating for its teaching by the government's Quality Assurance Agency. We have over twenty full-time staff in the school who conduct significant research into subjects as diverse as medieval heresy, urban culture, modern Japanese political thought and British foreign policy. The number of postgraduate students in the school is increasing and we have recently created two new degrees: the MA in History provides a means of supplementing an undergraduate degree with more detailed study while the MA in History (Research) offers further training in research skills as well as a greater depth of understanding of specific areas of History. Our two-year part-time degree in Local History provides an opportunity for students to develop knowledge and understanding of one of the most important areas of historical study. As a postgraduate student inside the school you will become a member of a wider research community and be able to attend and possibly contribute to two sets or research seminars, one of which is run by the staff and the other by MA and PhD students.
