Overview

This MA Historical Research and Public History from New College of the Humanities is unique in its combination of advanced training in historical method, historiography, theory and practice of historical research, and evaluation of primary evidence alongside an exploration of public history as it is represented, constructed, debated and contested in the public sphere, including in museums and galleries, heritage sites, public policy, and the media.

The programme provides exceptional preparation for graduates from a range of humanities and social sciences disciplines who plan to continue their studies at PhD level, while also being aimed at graduates from a liberal arts or other humanities and social sciences background who now wish to pursue their interest in history.
