MA in Social and Cultural History

Course Description

This MA is research-inspired. It is designed to capture contemporary disciplinary debates with research-led modules informed by the staff’s current interests, publications, and collaborative projects.

History has a well-established research culture at BGU and postgraduates will be invited to join our staff at regular events, workshops, and presentations. Students will be encouraged to participate in the History Research Seminar Series, which will be scheduled to coincide with MA teaching days.

In the recent Research Excellence Framework (2014), 74% of the work submitted by History staff was judged to be of ‘international’ quality, including research that was deemed ‘world leading’ in its originality, significance and rigour.
