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.

On successful completion of the taught stage you will progress to your dissertation. You research and write a dissertation (20,000 words) on a topic or theme of your choice in consultation with academic staff.
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.
Taught stage assessment is via essays, other assignments (such as book reviews and presentations), and written examinations (for ancient or modern languages).
