Students can choose from the following strands: American history; British history; European history; early modern; history. The content of the MA programme consists primarily of taught courses. These taught courses draw together a wide range of expertise to offer a challenging, yet flexible, schedule of study.

Independent research will be supervised by an expert in the historical field who will closely assis students through their degree.
