Our History MA will enable you to become independent, confident and digitally literate learners, thus improving your employability, by engaging in sophisticated analytical skills. You will be joining a programme with an established record of high levels of student satisfaction.
Throughout the programme you will have the opportunity to emphasise your particular interests in social or political history through your choice of seminar and coursework assignments, and through the selection and development of an extended piece of independent research and critical writing on a topic of your choice.
The acquisition of a Masters degree in History already demonstrates high levels of specialism, but you will gain this not only through the development of a range of transferable skills but with the inclusion of digital learning it will allow you to apply other key skills (such as creating digital portfolios, web development and data management). There will also be opportunities for you to contribute your own work to various forums, including our History programme seminar series.
