The Department of Historys approach is thematic and interdisciplinary, with staff expertise spanning the histories of Britain, East and West Europe, South Asia and Africa.
We are on the cutting-edge of our fields and the student-teacher ratio allows us to devote an unmatched amount of time to individual supervision.
Our focus is primary research and we encourage students to follow their own historical interests.
The MA in History aims to develop your research skills, and your understanding of key debates and methods in historiography.
In addition, it allows you to develop their specific subject interests through a range of option modules and the dissertation.
Consequently, in addition to the compulsory core module (Explorations and Debates) and the Research Skills modules, you choose two options, one of which, if you wish, can be from another department at Goldsmiths or from the wide-ranging intercollegiate list (a list of MA modules available at other colleges of the University of London).
You'll end the programme by writing a 10,000-word dissertation on a topic of your own choice, based on primary research.
The process of writing the dissertation includes participating in organising, and presenting at, the department's dissertation conference.
Explorations & Debates in History
In addition to the two compulsory modules you will study two options. You may choose either both options from those offered by the Department of History at Goldsmiths, or one from the departmental MA options and the other either from another Goldsmiths department, or from a list of over thirty MA options offered by the history departments of other colleges which participate in the University of London MA intercollegiate Sharing Scheme.
The Department of History options encompass a diverse regional, conceptual and methodological range to investigate religious, cultural and political history in both the Western and non-Western world from the fifteenth century to the present. All options are based on the tutors current research.

You should normally have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at least second class standard in a relevant subject.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
