Ranking and student feedback
University of Hull evaluation:
Hull’s MA in History uniquely combines period-specific and thematic modules to give you the confidence to take part in historical debate beyond your immediate specialism. Widening your analytical lens beyond anything you will have been asked to do at undergraduate level, you will learn to ‘ask better questions’ that would matter just as much to a medievalist or a historian of the present. You join the same community as our postgraduate research students and benefit from the direct supervision of our world-leading experts in historical research.
The exceptional resources available at the University of Hull, and in our city and 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 an unrivalled range of dissertation topics.
