The wide-ranging expertise of Swansea University's historians offers the study of British, European, American or Asian History. The MA allows students to explore the history of art and culture, empire, gender, politics, religion, sexuality and science.
Students are introduced to key concepts that shape the study of history. Students on the MA benefit not only from the unusual concentration of historians at Swansea, but also from the existence of the College of Arts and Humanities Research Centres, the Callaghan Centre for the Study of Conflict, Power and Empires and the Richard Burton Centre.
The College of Arts and Humanities has a Graduate Centre. The Graduate Centre fosters and supports individual and collaborative research activity of international excellence and offers a vibrant and supportive environment for students pursuing postgraduate research and taught masters study. The Centre provides postgraduate training to enhance academic and professional development and facilitates participation in seminar programmes, workshops and international conferences.
