This Masters intended is intended to prepare postgraduates for a research-based career and enable specialisation in particular historical topics. It is designed to:
train historians; demonstrate your ability to undertake research to doctoral level at Stirling or other universities in Britain and overseas; provide a foundation for applications to research councils (AHRC, ESRC) and doctoral training partnerships (including SGSAH) that fund PhD research; prepare you for a research-based career; and enhance career prospects and career development.
These aims are achieved through the completion of independent study modules and skills training conducted under supervision. You’ll be allocated an individual supervisor to direct your study and plan the curriculum to reflect your interests and requirements.
You can exit after stage 1 with a PgCert Historical Research.
A minimum of a second class Honours degree (2:1 preferred) or equivalent in a relevant subject. Applicants without these formal qualifications but with significant appropriate/relevant work/life experience are encouraged to apply.
Research proposal required (1,500 word maximum).
