Research programmes in History (MPhil, PhD)

We welcome and encourage applications for postgraduate degrees by research. In addition to topics focusing on single research areas, we actively encourage interdisciplinary research that cuts across the spectrum of historical studies, or other intellectual disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and beyond. Joint supervision may be provided.

Skills training

There are a wide range of opportunities to get involved in graduate training across the department, faculty, and university to discover the latest research, meet other researchers working in similar areas, and develop new skills and methods.
