The History MA at De Montfort University offers you the opportunity to learn in a structured, yet flexible way. You will study the core modules which provide you with structure but at the same time they will help you to build and develop your historical skills to conduct independent research, manage projects, organise conferences, think critically while engaging you with a passion for History.
The modules are designed to advance your understanding of ‘Historical Methodologies’ but at the same time also introduce you to the importance of digital humanities, ‘Public History and Heritage’. The course uniquely brings together the history of ‘Global Leicester’ spanning across the historical periods and blending the local with global narratives.
At the same time the programme is flexible in helping you develop your own specialisms and research interests. While the core modules provide you with the academic rigour of learning history at advanced levels, the practical skills involved in History and Humanities research allow you get first-hand experience of conference management, presenting work and writing for publications. It is an ideal stepping-stone to either research at PhD level or a career in teaching, publishing, research or event management.
The MA History programme is designed to both enhance your generic skills and knowledge to put you in a better position to enter professions such as teaching, museums and archives, project management, marketing or other professions. The subject specialisms and independent research will form the basis of progressing onto a PhD.
