Postgraduate history courses

Postgraduate History courses

Our exciting range of postgraduate degrees offer students a chance to study the past at MA Level. You’ll learn from research-active historians, archaeologists and classicists in small groups, in diverse and dynamic classes held in the heart of central London.

We offer a huge range of modules and programmes, from pre-history to the present, and you’ll complete a dissertation with the support of a specialist supervisor in your field.

For students who do not meet the direct entry criteria, or who want to study more flexibly, we offer graduate certificates and postgraduate certificate and diploma programmes and short courses.

Birkbeck has long specialised in offering part time as well as full time postgraduate education, and from 2021-22 we are happy to offer our MA Historical Research as an online degree. You can choose to follow it entirely online, entirely in person, or blend your learning.
