History MRes

Course Description

Choose your own path through six centuries of human history by proposing your own research topic for your masters thesis.
Work closely with internationally recognised researchers* who are experts in a range of historical fields as you develop the skills that will allow you to begin a career in historical research, with the knowledge and expertise to progress onto MPhil or PhD studies.
Join the thriving postgraduate research community at Plymouth University with students across a vast range of arts and humanities subjects supported by the Centre for Humanities, Music and Performing Arts research (HuMPA).
Explore history with your friends and colleagues by joining the History Society, a lively and supportive community hosting educational and social events.
Discover the most up-to-date ways of studying history through our online resources including a vast eBook library. Build links with local record offices and archives, accessing opportunities to develop your expertise in the local and regional history of Plymouth and the South West.
Study flexibly, with the research focus of the programme meaning both the full and part-time methods of study allow you to complete a masters degree while in employment, and with little time on campus.
If you would like to study part time, we recommend our ResM in History. This includes the same taught modules as the MRes, and will also see you complete an extended written thesis in a subject of your choosing. Unlike the MRes you have the flexibility to submit your thesis any time between 24–36 months (two years of part-time study with 12 months to work on your thesis) or, if you are making excellent progress, you may apply to transfer directly into our PhD programme after two years, rather than submitting a ResM thesis.
