This programme aims to allow students who have a clearly-defined research project and good research skills to develop advanced knowledge in a particular field, without studying for the more extended degree of MPhil/PhD. The MA by Research in History takes the form of supervised individual research, providing the chance to complete a dissertation. Members of staff in the School of History & Heritage aim to provide you with the academic support to conduct in-depth research into the topic that interests you. Example areas of research expertise in the School include medieval history and modern British history. You will join a vibrant academic community with regular research seminars, such as the History & Heritage seminar series.

Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
The assessment at this level of study takes the form of an 80,000 word thesis. A PhD is awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic to a group of academics. You are also expected to demonstrate how your research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.
Relevant Master’s degree. Students whose first language is not English will require English Language IELTS 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in each element, or equivalent
