Study type Taught


Hull’s MA in History combines thematic modules to give you the confidence to take part in historical debate beyond your immediate specialism.

Cutting-edge theoretical approaches and methodologies will reflect on complex contemporary global challenges like climate change, social justice, conflict, political and economic change, and the disruption of historic categories and forms of government. You will learn to ask questions that matter just as much to a medievalist as to a historian of the present and widen your analytic lens to explore new topics and seek answers in the areas you are passionate about.

You join a community of postgraduate research students and benefit from the direct supervision of our world-leading experts in historical research.

Our research is driven by both individual excellence, and by larger collaborative projects that have received significant amounts of external funding and which generate impact across a number of communities.

The exceptional resources available at the University of Hull, and in our city and the surrounding region, enable you to cultivate your own interests and strengths. Hull History Centre offers a treasure trove of archive material and our Maritime Historical Studies Centre is globally recognised as a centre for maritime history research. We contribute to Hull’s Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation, which has a library of its own.

On campus, the Brynmor Jones Library offers more than one million printed texts and serves as a digital information hub for the University. The breadth of research interests among our academic staff means we can offer a wide range of dissertation topics.
