History (MRes)

Course Description

About this course

Are you keen to learn from widely published academics who are recognised as thought-leaders in their areas of specialism?

The History MRes course incorporates taught modules that explore key subjects such as historical contexts and digital history, whilst examining the critical and theoretical practices that are fundamental to research. In addition to core modules, you are able to tailor your learning to your own areas of interest and career aspirations.

To demonstrate your understanding and skills you will undertake an in-depth dissertation project under the guidance of our teaching team. You will also have the unique opportunity to organise your own one-day research conference, offering you and an opportunity to share your work with staff and students within a supportive environment.

Northumbria University’s Humanities department boasts strong links with a range of cultural partners and we aim to provide you with direct industry exposure and live project opportunities throughout the duration of your course.

You will learn in state-of-the-art facilities, including our new Institute for the Humanities.
