The Aberdeen MLitt in Modern History combines cutting-edge teaching, professional research training, and individual research. A postgraduate degree in history prepares students for careers in all fields that value analytical thinking, creative problem solving, and high level research skills. Our students have gone on to careers in teaching, government, public service, journalism, and corporations. It can also lead to further academic study or personal enrichment.
Students on the Aberdeen MLitt in Modern History have access to a wide range of courses in a variety of fields taught by leading international scholars. They will have the opportunity to pursue directed research towards a dissertation on a subject of their choice and will receive training in research skills.
In addition to our taught programme, we also offer an MLitt in History as a research degree.
