Ours is one of only two History courses in the UK where you can combine undergraduate and postgraduate study to achieve a masters-level degree and gain a head start in your career. The Integrated Masters gives you a more advanced and critical understanding of the subject, giving you a taste of cutting edge and innovative research.

What is an Integrated Masters?

The Integrated Masters takes you on a journey from undergraduate to postgraduate learning, giving you greater opportunity to develop advanced research skills and specialist knowledge. The qualification is highly respected by employers and will put you at a real advantage when seeking a graduate career.

It also offers an excellent way to fund postgraduate study: you can secure a student loan which covers all four years of your full-time study.

A deep sense of perspective

History is a subject for anyone with a sense of curiosity and a desire for a deeper understanding of the world around them. It has the power to make us question who we are, how we have come to act the way we do, and the experiences that have shaped people's lives in the past. Studying History will turn you into a critical thinker, ready to challenge received wisdoms.

As well as covering broad historical themes, you will explore a wide range of specific topics - everything from the First World War to the history of China. There will also be a particular emphasis on the impact of the Enlightenment and on the ways in which historians engage with the general public, giving you the chance to inspire others with your passion for history.

A great learning experience

We pride ourselves on delivering a learning experience that is varied, exciting and fun. For four consecutive years from 2010, 100% of students responding to the National Student Survey said they were satisfied with the overall quality of the course. The figure was 98% in 2014. This track record has reinforced our reputation as one of the top departments for student satisfaction nationwide.

Raise your profile

In a unique project, you will inspire others by organising and marketing a public history conference and presenting your research to a wider audience. Topics explored at this conference have included the experience of British prisoners-of-war during the First World War, the fight against the Apartheid regime in South Africa, and gay riots in 1960s America.

At our 2014 Public History Conference, students attracted TV and radio coverage with their thought-provoking papers on forgotten aspects of the Great War. They will now see their work in print as published scholars: the conference proceedings are set to be published by an academic publishing house.

Inspirational projects

You will use your research and creative skills to interpret the past for the benefit of the wider community. We provide exciting opportunities for projects involving international arts and heritage organisations, including work placements.

Explore history outside the classroom

We offer study visits and fieldtrips to bring your learning to life. You will explore the practical and intellectual applications of history in museums, art galleries, country houses, parks and heritage sites, including a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Recent visits have taken in the Imperial War Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the city of Chester and the urban heartland of Manchester. And, of course, Derbyshire is the ideal location to study history - with its rich industrial past and thriving heritage industry.

You can also study our three-year BA (Hons) History or study a BA combining History (Joint Honours) - find out more about our joint honours degrees.

    Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management

    Testimonial from Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management, student at University of Derby

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”

    Sumedha Rambukwella MSc Marketing Management

    Testimonial from Sumedha Rambukwella MSc Marketing Management, student at University of Derby

    Sumedha found that modules were covered in great detail; smaller classes are beneficial because they enable the students to have the lecturer’s personal attention. “Lecturers at Derby are extremely supportive and very friendly and my class mates are truly international. Being exposed to various cultures here in Derby while studying has already helped me and it will continue to help me when I start working in an international environment.”
