Course Summary

About the research degree

A Master's by Research (MA) allows you to undertake a one-year full time or two-year part time research degree. You will have one-to-one supervision by a specialist in your field and join regular Graduate History Seminars designed to enhance your research skills. Such programmes are attractive to those studying for personal interest, professional development or as preparation for a PhD.

The MA by Research in Public History, Oral History and Community Heritage allows you to undertake independent research in applied and practical historical study. It will develop your applied and theoretical skills for practice and employment as a historian, heritage worker or community heritage activist.

You will produce a thesis of between 15,000 and 25,000 words and a public-facing output such as an exhibition, film, oral history archive or collaboration with a community organisation, which will then be examined.

On successful completion, you will be awarded your degree and if you have enjoyed this taste of research you may then decide to apply for the full research doctoral degree (PhD).
