Course Summary

At Lancaster University, you’ll be able to tailor your study by choosing from a wide range of historical subjects. This will allow you to specialise in the topics most important to you and to develop a unique combination of expertise.

With access to our world-leading researchers, you’ll gain insights from experts in the field in diverse areas ranging from Roman religion and medieval politics to digital humanities and histories of healthcare.

Perhaps you’re interested in researching the military history of North America? Or maybe how the bodies of women were affected under certain regimes? You’ll find the support needed to explore these and other topics from a teaching team active in research projects all over the world.


This 18,000-20,000 word dissertation provides the opportunity for you to demonstrate the knowledge, understanding, research skills and techniques of presentation developed in the taught modules of the MA degree scheme. The specialist field of enquiry is chosen by the student in consultation with a supervisor and other members of the department before arrival and in the first half of Michaelmas Term. Individual one-to-one supervisions will be provided throughout the year to support taught modules, define and formulate a research hypothesis, identify relevant qualitative and quantitative sources, offer guidance on presentation and comment on the structure of the dissertation.
