MA in History
The MA in History gives you the chance to acquire the sophisticated analytical skills and methodological skills necessary for a nuanced and critical understanding of the past. It offers a wide range of challenging modules, taught in small groups, that stimulate enthusiastic engagement. While it provides a valuable experience and qualification in its own right, it is also intended to ensure a strong basis for those who wish to progress to doctoral research.
Master’s teaching at Nottingham draws directly on the extensive and world-leading research expertise of staff within the Department of History including modern history. There are particular strengths in 20th-century history (Germany from the Great War to the 1970s; British culture, society, and politics; photography; international relations; the Second World War), British history from the Anglo-Saxons to the present; imperial and colonial history; gender and sexuality; Russia and the Ukraine; and the Middle Ages. Besides the core research methods module, you have a free choice of History options, and are able to widen your menu by taking modules from other cognate disciplines. The MA in History thus allows considerable flexibility while at the same time allowing you to specialise and focus your research interests.
The University of Nottingham is consistently named as one of the most targeted universities by Britain’s leading graduate employers.
