Explore an exciting breadth of academic discourse on the history of British railways between 1825 and 2010.
This unique Masters programme covers a range of perspectives crossing social, cultural, political, business, economic and technological boundaries. You'll develop a comprehensive understanding of the role of the railway in history, and the broader impact of historical events on the transport and mobility industry.
During your studies, you will join a vibrant online community of students from around the world to learn outside of the traditional classroom. You'll engage with your peers and a dedicated academic via intuitive technology that requires only basic IT skills, and you'll follow a series of interactive and flexible modules.
This interdisciplinary course will enable you to analyse a range of materials and participate in lively forums and discussion sessions with a supportive and knowledgeable discipline expert. As well as engaging with key themes and debates on Britain's railways, you'll gain skills in independent research and analysis, and produce a dissertation on a topic of choice within railway, transport and mobility history.
