The MA History programme at Queens is designed around students research interests and provides the opportunity to choose courses relating to a variety of historical periods and locations. There are six strands (American, British, Irish, Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern and Religion, Identity and Conflict). Within each strand, students can opt to specialise in particular areas such as gender history, religious history, social history, political history or economic history. Or, they can create a more varied personal programme of study. The School has a host of world leading experts in all periods of time from Ancient to Contemporary History.
This programme provides students with an opportunity to work in the largest and most international community of historians on the island of Ireland.
The School is a world-leading centre for innovative and dynamic historical research. In the 2014 UK assessment of research (REF), History at Queens was ranked in the top 20 departments for research.
The Public Internship module gives students an opportunity to work alongside heritage and public history professionals on a range of practical projects.
