This is an applied Master's in History. Its defining aspect is the combination of historical study (developed in-line with the research specialisms of our exceptional History staff) with the opportunity to devise and produce material for use in, with, and by the public.
You'll want to study the past, possibly as a precursor to further research, but you'll also benefit from developing your skills in communicating its stories to diverse audiences, in a variety of ways.
MA History at Bath Spa is your chance to deepen your understanding of History in the ideal setting: you'll study at our Newton Park campus, which is in itself an artefact, equipped for modern use. You're based in the World Heritage City of Bath – the perfect setting for a wider exploration of local, regional, national and international themes in the study of History.
We've established a reputation for the study of public history, for the quality of our research, and for our work in the creative arts. The course's focus on communication, in all its forms, and on the ways in which we analyse and present historical material for use in, with and by the public, means that you'll graduate with a range of applicable skills and invaluable experience.
You'll be doing as well as learning: project planning, negotiating, getting to grips with copyright and licensing, editing, and pitching. Our goal is to enhance your skills for a range of careers and sectors, including business, health, education, charitable work, publishing and commissioning, plus much more.
MA History can be studied on a part-time basis.
There can’t be many campuses that rival Newton Park. The parkland estate has everything you’d expect from a modern university, as well as a castle and a lake. All this and it's only four miles from the buzz of central Bath.

Job Opportunity Potential
We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:
- Exploring your options
- Gaining valuable experience
- Progressing your ideas and career plans
At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.
We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
- 2 Years PSW is applicable after the course completing (Bachelors level or above).
