History

The MA History course consists of broad, thematic taught modules that focus on the middle ages through to present day. Offering an extremely flexible approach to study, this course incorporates three core modules - historical contexts, digital history and dissertation preparation - which you will study alongside two modules of your own choice, in subjects such as American history, British history, European history and early modern history. In addition to the taught modules of this course you will also complete a dissertation that will be conducted under the careful guidance of our specialist academics. Throughout your studies you will have access to our leading learning facilities and new Institute for the Humanities.
