This course offers a flexible, challenging Masters experience. You can choose either the specialist pathway MA History (Public History and Heritage) or, alternatively, you may pursue a general History route selecting from a diverse range of units and independent study consistent with your own interests in the further study of History. This programme does not focus on one single historical period or theme and has modules that vary from year to year. These specialist modules draw on the research strengths of the department. We house the Manchester Centre for Regional History, which gives our students the advantage of our strong links with historians and archives that extend beyond the University. Selected units on the part-time route of this course are available to distance learning students via online learning. These are currently - Historical Skills and Research Methods; A Good War; Nobles, States and Societies.
