Course summary

The MA History programme at Queen’s is designed to offer an innovative package of modules that challenges students to develop their knowledge and skills, and flourish in their area of interest or future specialism. Our Faculty have research specialisms across a range of chronological and geographical areas.

Students will be taught by leading experts in public history, urban history, women’s and gender history, religious history, political history, and extra-European history. Modules are designed in a complementary fashion in order to develop the range of skills that employers expect from graduates from the best designed postgraduate taught programmes. They are designed also to train students who want to continue onto a PhD. Modules range from Theory, methods and sources to Topic in the History of Religion, the History of Race and Ethnicity, the History of the Cold War, Social History, Political History or Economic History. You can opt to take these approaches within American History, British History, Irish History, European History, African History, Asian History or Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern History.
