This MA in History will be of interest to both recent graduates and those wishing to return to study in higher education.

This course offers postgraduates the opportunity to engage with various periods of early modern and modern history. Working alongside leading academics students are encouraged to engage with subject areas of their choice.

Why do a MA in History? It builds on the skills of thinking, evaluation, and writing that we stress at the undergraduate level. Additionally, it will deepen the skills needed to analyze data and documentation and develop individual skills of writing, oral participation, and presentation. Each graduate is monitored by a supervisor who offers professional advice and guidance.

This program seeks to explore these issues by focusing on selected themes spanning the early modern period through to the late twentieth century while providing you with an opportunity to study and reflect on related themes concerning globalization and politics.

Due to the various branches of expertise held among our academic staff students are free to produce an MA dissertation on an array of topics, including Elizabeth I; English piracy;  the court of Charles I;  modern British and Irish history;  the Spanish Civil War and anarchy; European Fascism and the Holocaust; the History of Food; and general aspects of modern European History.
