What will I learn?

The MRes programme provide a personalised and focused introduction to postgraduate research allowing you to develop as an independent researcher with the support of an expert in Archives. It provides a rigorous overview of the current state of scholarship in your selected field, guides you, through a programme of directed, individualised reading, to the selection of a feasible research project, and allows you to complete a substantial piece of research. By pursuing our programmes you’ll gain the skills and knowledge you need to carry out further research towards a PhD. Our MA programmes are taught by research-active experts who bring their knowledge of, and passion for, their subjects into the seminar room. Teaching takes place in small-group seminars or workshops and through one-to-one tutorials, as we believe this leads to the best collaboration between students and staff.

Careers: The programmes are designed to provide students with a wide range of transferable skills. The History taught programmes are designed to meet the training requirements of the AHRC and the ESRC and thus to equip you for further study towards an MPhil/PhD. However, our MA students go into a wide range of professions, including media, public sector management and school teaching, as well as academia.
