Course Description

The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). The Department of History has developed a strong research profile, coming joint second in the UK in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE, December 2008). Our distinctiveness can be summed up under five headings: contemporary, comparative, interdisciplinary, international and innovative. We have a lively postgraduate community, with many students from overseas, and take pride in providing excellent research training and careful supervision in a friendly atmosphere, with good staff-student relationships. Our MA by Dissertation will particularly suit you if your circumstances make a taught MA inappropriate and your previous academic achievement indicates an ability to undertake a research-only degree in history (research training is best acquired through a taught course). Our students may register for an MA by Dissertation in any topic for which we have the appropriate supervisory expertise available, including those not covered by our taught MA courses. The minimum period of study is usually one year full-time (two years part-time) and your dissertation should be no more than 30,000 words.
