Students studying for the History (Local) MA will be attached to the Faculty's Centre for Local History Studies. You will be able to draw on its resources and the guidance of its staff when undertaking your own local-based research projects.
The Centre was established in 1997 as a major research centre and to act as a focus for members of the local community wishing to develop their interests in local history. Research projects include the Kingston Local History Project and the Great Ormond Street Hospital Project, both of which have developed unique historical databases as a means of studying past communities.
We now also specialise in the history of healthcare and gender history.
What will you study?
The course content is designed to provide you with the academic framework you need to develop your own research interests. You will gain the research skills relevant to the study and practice of history in general and local history in particular. In particular, you will learn how historical data is compiled, analysed and assessed. You also look at how ICT can be of value to the historian.
For the dissertation you can focus your own research on either individual localities/communities or the individual themes that have shaped those localities over the past two centuries.
