Our taught Masters degrees in History combine the study of cultural history and literature with film and print culture.
MA History and Culture focuses upon the interdisciplinary study of modern and contemporary history in combination with literature, print and popular culture, pursing a variety of broad thematic subjects and specific case studies, from a study of the Victorian city to conflict in the Middle East.
MA Popular Culture enables you to undertake a comparative study of history, literature and film, studying topics as wide ranging as propaganda in the Second World War, contemporary women’s writing and European cinema.
Particular themes or events in history can also be explored in depth on our MRes Masters by Research.
The Department of English, History and Creative Writing is based in the Main Building at the centre of the campus, near the £26m Catalyst building which includes the University library.
A prime example of 1930s architecture, the Main Building has undergone extensive refurbishment to combine a traditional setting with modern facilities, including the £15m Student Hub.
The building includes lecture theatres, seminar and tutorial rooms, which are ideal for group discussions and one-to-one tuition, as well as IT resources and social learning spaces.
