Programme description

The MSc by Research in History offers you the opportunity to undertake a substantial piece of supervised independent research in your chosen field.

We have strong research concentrations in Scottish history, American history, global and transnational history, Irish history, intellectual history, and medieval history, and colleagues who can supervise topics spanning two millennia and five continents. Colleagues in the department welcome the opportunity to discuss their research topics with potential applicants.

You can identify a potential supervisor by looking at the School of History Classics and Archaeology’s Staff Profiles, which give details of research interests and publications, and email addresses. You are encouraged to contact a potential supervisor to discuss your research project before making a formal application.
