Program description

History MA

MA History at Bath Spa is your chance to deepen your understanding of History in the ideal setting: you'll study at our Newton Park campus, which is in itself an artefact, equipped for modern use. You're based in the World Heritage City of Bath – the perfect setting for a wider exploration of local, regional, national and international themes in the study of History.

We've established a reputation for the study of public history, for the quality of our research, and for our work in the creative arts. The course's focus on communication, in all its forms, and on the ways in which we analyse and present historical material for use in, with and by the public, means that you'll graduate with a range of applicable skills and invaluable experience.

You'll be doing as well as learning: project planning, negotiating, getting to grips with copyright and licensing, editing, and pitching. Our goal is to enhance your skills for a range of careers and sectors, including business, health, education, charitable work, publishing and commissioning, plus much more.

MA History can be studied on a part-time basis.
