The MRes History provides the opportunity to develop your research skills at the same time as deepening your existing historical knowledge. It provides an excellent opportunity to gain training in research methods and complete an extended research project which provides a clear pathway to continuing research at doctoral level. The degree also enhances your attractiveness to employers by developing key transferable skills.
The degree consists of two taught modules, one being the core research training module Historical Research Methods, and an extended dissertation. The dissertation consists of a maximum of 30,000 words and allows you to pursue a major independent research project of your own choosing, under the direction of a supervisor. You can identify a potential supervisor by looking at our staff supervision interests.
