Ulster University - Coleraine


This is a broad-ranging programme covering the history of Ireland, Britain, Russia and the Soviet Union, the Mediterranean world, the British Empire and America since the early modern period. You will benefit from our wide range of specialisms in social, political and cultural history, and comparative and transnational histories. We have particular strengths in the history of medicine, ethics, and emotions. You will be taught by leading authorities in these fields and gain advanced training in historical methods, skills, and theories with historical experts.

You will also develop an innovative public history project before independently pursuing a dissertation topic of your own choice. The strongest social history dissertation is eligible for the annual Birley Prize (£750).

You may progress to doctoral research, education roles or careers in areas such as libraries, archives, museums, research for charities, official organisations, government, marketing advertising, publishing, the civil service, or politics.
