The MSt in History aims to improve students’ practical and intellectual grasp of research processes, ability to conceptualise and engage with historical problems, and broaden their understanding of the historical and historiographical context within which their own research is set. This course is designed for students with interests in any period of British, European or American history (which may also include non-European elements, eg European expansion, Empire building or emigration). Those primarily interested in other parts of the world may like to consider the MSt in Global and Imperial History. The course will encourage students to develop practical and intellectual familiarity with advanced research in British, American and/or continental European history. Students will also be encouraged to develop key research skills in parallel to their course work: these include the ability to read and interpret manuscript sources, the development of IT skills and competence in Latin or modern foreign languages.
