Our innovative MA Historical Research & Public History provides advanced training in historical method, historiography, theory and the practices of historical research, in addition to exploring history as it is represented and debated in the public sphere,  including in museums and galleries, heritage sites, public policy, and the media.

Our MA Historical Research & Public History offers a rich and intensive study of historical research and public history, designed to produce talented and sought-after historians who are able to apply their skills not only to academia but also to the practice of history in the public sphere.

This Master’s programme can be completed in one year (full-time), or stretched over two years (part-time). International students who require a visa are only eligible to study this programme on a one-year, full-time basis.

Structure

The MA Historical Research & Public History comprises seven courses studied full-time across a single academic year, or part-time over two academic years.

There are five compulsory courses: The Historian’s Craft, Public History, and Applied Public History, plus two Dissertation courses. Students can choose from a range of historical periods and topics for their remaining courses.

Teaching

The MA Historical Research & Public History will be delivered predominantly through seminars, of no more than ten people, and individual tutorials.

Students who are enrolled full-time should anticipate devoting approximately 35-40 hours per week to their studies for the duration of their degree. In Michaelmas and Hilary terms, this will include approximately six to seven formal contact hours per week, with the remainder consisting of structured independent study.

Independent study primarily comprises preparing both formative and summative work, though it may also include participation in History Society meetings, History Research seminars, and professorial lectures. In Trinity term, students predominantly work independently to write their dissertations.

Part-time students will, on average, devote half as much time to their studies over a period lasting twice as long.

Assessment

Students will write formative essays during the year, which will receive written tutor feedback.

Summative assessment of the MA Historical Research & Public History will be via essays undertaken by students throughout the academic year, in addition to their extended research proposal and dissertation of 15,000 words.

Timetables

Timetables are usually made available to students during Freshers’ Week. Teaching can be scheduled to take place during any day of the week. However, when possible, Wednesday afternoons are usually reserved for sports and cultural activities.

Your qualification

NCH degrees are designed and created by the College’s professors and faculty. The courses reflect their areas of expertise and research interests, meaning that they are actively engaged with the material that they will teach you, and there may be opportunities for students to participate in active research.

In the case of the MA Historical Research & Public History programme, the curriculum was overseen and developed by the NCH History Faculty. Depth Study courses are devised and taught the members of the NCH History faculty. These include Dr Lars Kjaer BA, MPhil, PhD, Lecturer in Medieval History, Dr Edmund Neill MA, DPhil (Oxon), MSc (LSE), FRHistS, Lecturer in Modern History and Dr Olly Ayers BA (Manchester), PhD (Kent), Lecturer in History and Politics.

The New College of the Humanities MA Historical Research & Public History degree programme is validated by Swansea University as being of an appropriate standard and quality and will lead to the Swansea University award of a Master of Arts (MA).

The MA Communicating Economic Policy programme is an exciting mix of economic policy and the communication of economic knowledge. Economic arguments are central to political decision-making, and the most effective economic analysts are not only able to understand the technical detail, but can also engage in meaningful conversation about economic matters with both economists and the general public.

This Master’s programme can be completed in one year (full-time), or stretched over two years (part-time). International students who require a visa are only eligible to study this programme on a one-year, full-time basis.

Summary

The MA Communicating Economic Policy programme has three main strands: economic policy, which equips you with an understanding of the conceptual tools of an economist; research skills, which teaches you the skills required to handle quantitative data, offers a grounding in qualitative research skills, and prepares you to undertake the entire production process of independent research; and economic communication, which invites you to reflect on what the field of economics can achieve, what its limitations are, and how these can be communicated to non- expert audiences.

Structure

The MA Communicating Economic Policy comprises ten core courses studied full-time across a single academic year, or part-time over two academic years.

The courses comprise: Microeconomic Principles, Public & Industrial Economic Policy, Communication & Public Understanding of Economics, Statistics & Quantitive Research Skills, Macroeconomic Principles, International Economic Policy, The Making & Communication of Economic Knowledge, Research Design & Data Collection, and Ethics & Evaluation of Communication, plus Dissertation and lay summary article.

Teaching

The MA Communicating Economic Policy will be delivered predominantly through seminars, of no more than 10 people, and individual tutorials.

Students who are enrolled full-time should anticipate devoting approximately 35-40 hours per week to their studies for the duration of their degree. In Michaelmas and Hilary terms, this will include approximately six to seven formal contact hours per week, with the remainder consisting of structured independent study.

Independent study primarily comprises preparing both formative and summative work, though it may also include participation in History Society meetings, History Research seminars, and professorial lectures. In Trinity term, students predominantly work independently to write their dissertations.

Part-time students will, on average, devote half as much time to their studies over a period lasting twice as long.

Assessment

Summative assessment for the MA Communicating Economic Policy will be by a range of essays, a portfolio, a computer based project, seminar presentations, research proposal and examination. Students will also be assessed on a dissertation approximately 15,000 words including a lay summary article of approximately 1,000 words.
