The Victorian Studies programme at Leeds Trinity University gives you the opportunity to gain the skills in research, analysis and synthesis that you will need to progress to a research degree, as well as detailed knowledge of a range of topics within Victorian Studies. 

You will examine trends and developments in Victorian social and political history, and you will have the opportunity to explore a particular aspect of Victorian culture (for example, art, architecture, or music) in depth.

You also have the option of enhancing your employability skills – or developing in your profession – by applying your research in a workplace-based project. Taking the MA in Victorian Studies could lead on to a PhD, or to a career in teaching or the heritage industry.
