Course content

The Lancaster History MA is designed to foster the study of history at an advanced level and to develop skills which can be transferred into professions outside the university or which may form the basis of further research. You have a choice of four fascinating pathways:

  • Medieval and Early Modern
  • Modern
  • Heritage
  • Digital History

Each of the pathways consists of five taught modules and a 20,000 word dissertation.

The programme and the wide range of associated activities within the department combine to create a lively and enjoyable student experience and a real sense of academic community. In addition to your taught modules and supervision from our expert academics, you will be encouraged to attend research seminars, conferences, training events, reading groups and social events run by the department.

One of the key distinguishing factors about the Lancaster History MA is the option to work with heritage organisations on a work placement. Partner organisations include a wide variety of local, regional and national organisations, such as the National Trust, the Duchy of Lancaster, the Wordsworth Trust, and primary and secondary schools.


The following list provides examples of the range of modules available. The options available may vary each year. Please visit our website for the complete list of modules available.

• Belief and Unbelief: Gods and Pagans from Antiquity to Today

• Creative Voices: History and Fiction

• Researching and Writing History

• Beyond the Text: Literature, Image and Voice as Historical Evidence

• Using Digital Texts as History Sources

• Sources for Medieval History and Palaeography

• School Placement (primary or secondary)
