Investigate far-ranging topics and themes across early modern and modern Welsh History with experts passionate about their subject.
The MA in Welsh History enables you to explore wide-ranging topics and themes across early modern and modern Welsh History with experts passionate about their subject.
We draw together a wide range of chronological, geographical and historiographic expertise to offer a challenging and flexible programme of study, with teaching and research tailored to your interests.
You will find the enthusiasm of our academics infectious, and our proximity to major archives and resources a real benefit.
Depending on your area of interest, you can choose English- or Welsh-medium supervision for your dissertation. Some modules are available in either language.
How will I be taught?
You will be taught through a mix of seminars, lectures, tutorials and language classes (depending on modules chosen).
As part of the programme, you will be encouraged to deliver presentations to your fellow MA students within our supportive community.
On successful completion of the taught elements of the programme you will progress to a dissertation of up to 20,000 words on a topic or theme of your choice (subject to the approval of your supervisor).
How will I be supported?
On enrolment you are assigned your own Personal Tutor.
We offer one-to-one time in set office hours during teaching weeks, and also welcome email contact. Additionally, you can make appointments to see your personal tutor or module leaders on a one-to-one basis about any issues. Our Professional Services team is also available for advice and support.
Your personal tutor is your contact point to discuss any problems arising from the course. Further queries should be addressed to the Course Director.
Graduates of this and similar programmes have gone on to PhD programmes or into careers in the heritage sector, journalism, teaching, media research (media, commercial, academic) and publishing.
