Masters courses

We offer masters courses across a broad range of topics, including history, philosophy, archaeology and digital humanities.


Digital humanities

We offer two postgraduate masters courses. MA Digital Culture and Communication and MA Cultural Data Management and Communication.


We have a variety of History subject programmes from our research preparation masters, the MA in Historical Research, to our range of thematic MA programmes. Within these, you can work with world-leading academics to study history from the medieval period to the modern day, with options encompassing the history of Britain and Europe to America and the wider world.

Our archaeology programmes are taught by world-leading experts and have flexible course structures that allow you to tailor your degree. A masters degree is the perfect way to extend your love of archaeological studies and take it to the next level.


We offer MA degrees in philosophy, cognitive studies, and political theory. Our Philosophy MA is a flexible introduction to postgraduate study in philosophy, whilst the interdisciplinary Political Theory and Cognitive Studies MAs benefit from teaching contributions from other departments.
