Challenging and diverse, our flagship History programme builds on the Department’s research strengths and has been designed to provide a thorough training in the study of history across a wide range of periods and themes.

About

The MA History programme is offered by Teesside University.

You consider history from a variety of perspectives, including literature, architecture, design, media and heritage, to explore how people lived in the past and what factors shaped their environment, beliefs and culture. You can accumulate credit towards your chosen award at your own pace, and you can study towards a postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma or, on completion of a dissertation, an MA.

What you study

A small number of core modules provide the foundation for historical research. The programme fosters the integration of archival and secondary sources necessary for original research and writing. Negotiated learning modules also allow you to agree a course of study with specific learning objectives and a clearly defined assessment.

How you learn

At postgraduate level it is important that you take an active role in structuring your own learning experience, and also engage with the relevant methods and underpinning theories of the disciplines you encounter. At the same time we recognise that students embark on their study with different levels of skills and awareness of the discipline, especially in the case of mature students perhaps returning to study. The Research Skills and Methods module is designed to address these issues, involving a high degree of regular tutor contact, a firm foundation of research, interpretation and writing skills, as well as an introduction to a range of methodological approaches and historiographies.
