The breadth of expertise and experience in the History Department (forty or so full time members of staff), along with a thriving culture of research, seminars and conferences, make Warwick one of the very best universities in the UK to undertake research in history. Students taking the MA by Research are expected to complete their degrees in one year of full-time study, or two years part-time. As a research student your closest contact will be with your supervisor, or supervisors, who will meet with you regularly to discuss your work, and agree a programme of reading, research and writing with you.
Additional support and training are provided by the Department, Arts Faculty and the Graduate School, as well as by Historys many reading groups, seminars, workshops and conferences. History researchers will benefit from the University Librarys new Research Exchange, a dedicated postgraduate conference and study area, with state-ofthe-art facilities.
At the core of this programme lies the design, research and composition of a dissertation (maximum length 40,000 words).
Students meet regularly with their supervisor/s and other members of the department to review their progress.
Alongside their research project, students are expected to follow the Warwick Historical Research Core module, Theory, Skill and Method.
The dissertation is assessed by internal and external subject specialists, who have the option of requiring the candidate to attend a Viva Voce (oral) examination.
