Explore the influence of significant events and contexts on culture Develop into an independent researcher in a supportive environment as you meet and learn from experts in the study of cultural history. Our MA Cultural History course allows you to explore and consider the definitions, evolutions, and theoretical understandings of the effects of historical events on people, their beliefs, and their behaviour. Why this course? This course will appeal to anyone who is thoughtful, intellectually curious, and inquisitive about cultural history, and who would like a supportive and stimulating learning environment in which to learn. We want to help you to develop your academic research, investigative, and writing skills as you work towards a specialism within the area of cultural history that interests you. We offer full and part time options for both our taught and research masters courses. This allows you to fit your studies around your other commitments. On this course you will:
- Present your ideas in a convincing and structured way to a range of audiences, both academic and non-academic.
- Discuss and argue in an informed, thoughtful and sensitive way, including the ability to compare critical approaches and different methodologies.
- Enhance your skills in high-level academic writing.
- Learn from our expert team of published writers and leading academics.
- Develop your independent research skills, including compiling bibliographies, understanding the range of academic tools, and use of the internet or research.
Feel the support of internationally-recognised research staff You will study our MA Cultural History through interactive lectures and seminars, over the course one year full-time and two years part-time. In each case you will take our four core modules, culminating in a research proposal and accompanying literature review.
