International History

The programme will equip you with knowledge and a skill set which will improve your ability to function within an increasingly interconnected world, and as such it is likely to improve your employability, particularly with respect to foreign-service, non-governmental organisation, and inter-governmental organisation careers, in a way that traditional history postgraduate qualifications will not. You will be taught by staff with a broad range of expertise and research interests in international history, in accordance with a philosophy that emphasises the development of students as practising historians. The programme includes access to a visiting speaker series given by notable historians on campus, and opportunities for you to contribute your own work to various forums, including an integrated MA International History seminar series.

Entry requirements

Applicants will normally require a 1st degree at 2.2 or above. International students will need to demonstrate that they have equivalent experience /qualifications as home students (i.e. the same entry criteria as above). If their 1st language is not English they must show evidence of English Language competence at IELTS level 6.0 (with no skill below 5.5) or equivalent.
