The MA in History builds on Coventry’s highly successful BA History (Hons) course by offering a research-led and student-inspired postgraduate course aimed at developing the research and professional skills of students, equipping them with essential skills to thrive in an increasingly global and mediatised world. It offers new and innovative history modules, while drawing on interdisciplinary expertise in the School of Humanities. The result is an exciting, modern and very distinctive MA in History.
The course explores essential questions about the nature and ownership of history. It explores important debates about the role of the media and social change in modern history through an interdisciplinary series of modules. Students are offered the opportunity to study social and cultural history as well as a chance to engage with heritage and memory studies, international relations, and political science: subjects which will make students looking to enter both the public and private sector significantly more employable.
Students on the course will examine questions about: the creation and preservation of history, exploring the potential ramifications of who controls the past, the impact of the media on framing and understanding historical events across the world, examining the ways in which our understanding of the past and the present is often a result of mediatisation, and the role that historical debates and events play in current discussions surrounding race and gender.
