Course Summary

The MA provides a distinctive, high-level programme of post-graduate study in History. You'll gain a combination of advanced skills training, in-depth historiographical knowledge relating to your chosen field of specialisation, and the opportunity to write a dissertation under the guidance of one of our expert academics. Alongside this, you will be given employability skills and experience, including a public heritage, museum or related work placement, through a unique internship module.


In this module, we explore the methods that historians employ, different approaches to studying history, and the challenges we must overcome. This module will support you in the transition to postgraduate study, as you acquire the skills and training required for the other modules on the MA programme, including the dissertation. You will be encouraged to explore the perspectives and practices that you find most engaging, whether cultural, social, political, intellectual, or some other form of historical inquiry. At the same time, we will reflect on the diversity of historical experience and interpretation, and the values that shape your own research and writing. The module will also include site visits to London archives and museums.
