Introduction

This programme aims to allow students who have a clearly-defined research project and good research skills to develop advanced knowledge in a particular field, without studying for the more extended degree of MPhil/PhD. The MA by Research in History takes the form of supervised individual research, providing the chance to complete a dissertation.

Members of staff in the School of History & Heritage aim to provide you with the academic support to conduct in-depth research into the topic that interests you. Example areas of research expertise in the School include medieval history and modern British history.

You will join a vibrant academic community with regular research seminars, such as the History & Heritage seminar series.

Research Areas, Projects & Topics

Example research areas include:

  • Roman and Byzantine history
  • Medieval ecclesiastical history
  • 20th Century British political history
  • History and culture in the 19th Century
  • Gender history
  • Urban history

How You Study

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.

How You Are Assessed

With the help of dedicated skills sessions and under the guidance of an academic supervisor, you will be expected to write a dissertation of around 25,000 words.

How To Apply

Enrolment Dates

To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February or May.

In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with your supervisor on an individual basis.

Entry Requirements

A minimum 2:2 honours degree in a related discipline.
