Our taught Masters degrees in history will deepen your understanding of the modern world, exploring how literature, historical developments, debates and events have intersected with people’s lives and continue to influence contemporary culture.

MA Modern History & Culture immerses you in a variety of themes from the past 200 years, from Victorian entertainment to the rise of antisemitism, as you gain experience of archival research.

MA Nineteenth-Century Studies examines the literature, history, culture and digital humanities of the nineteenth century, with opportunities to participate in field trips to cultural heritage organisations and undertake work-based projects.

Particular themes or events in history can also be explored in depth on our MRes Masters by Research or PhD Doctor of Philosophy. Alternatively, you can train to teach history on our PGCE Secondary History (Age Phase 11-16) with QTS.
