This rigorous Master’s programme is designed to develop students’ specialist knowledge of history alongside advanced research skills that are transferable to a variety of careers paths, including PhD study.
Students can specialise in history of gender and sexuality, media history, contemporary British history, or pursue a general programme of study instead. Through cumulative research, students can develop the relevant skills and an enhanced capacity for informed citizenship, critical thinking, and simple awareness.
The city of Lincoln is rich in history and heritage making it the perfect setting in which to conduct history research. Students can benefit from the historical resources available in the city, including an extensive archive of materials at the on-campus Media Archive of Central England (MACE), the International Bomber Command Centre, and The Wren Library at Lincoln Cathedral which houses several thousand early modern books.
Students on the course are expected to undertake an in-depth independent research project and produce a detailed dissertation.
