MA in Railway Studies (by research)


Course Description

The MA/Diploma in Railway Studies & Transport History is a taught course offered by the Institute of Railway Studies & Transport History. The Institute is run jointly by the University of York and the National Railway Museum. Students are registered with the University, and the MA/Diploma course is governed by the University's regulations.

The MA/Diploma is designed to appeal to anyone who is interested in the history and heritage of railways and other kinds of inland transport. It particularly emphasizes the social, cultural, political, economic, and technological history of railways and urban transport in Britain and abroad.

Entry Requirements

To apply for the course you normally need to have a good honours degree (or equivalent) in the humanities or social sciences, although we do take into consideration the experience of those who graduated some time ago. An application is equally welcome if you are a graduate in engineering or the natural sciences and you can show evidence of competence in the humanities or appropriate social sciences. People who pass the Graduate Certificate in Railway Studies or the Graduate Certificate in Transport History at an appropriate level may also apply for the taught MA/Diploma.
