Postgraduate (Taught) Handbook


It is with great pleasure that I welcome all MA students to the History Department.

Our MA cohort has grown in recent years, fostering a vibrant and supportive community. MA students are encouraged to see themselves as ‘full’ members of the Department, and are welcome to attend any of the research seminars organised by academic staff. All lecturers hold regular office hours (displayed on our office doors and our webpages), so feel free to drop in and introduce yourselves during these times.

Warwick is one of the largest history departments in the country and there is a huge array of research expertise, of a broad geographical and chronological scope, for you to benefit from. Whether you intend to pursue further postgraduate study or a career outside of academia, the Warwick postgraduate community is an ideal place in which to develop critical thinking, an understanding of the politics of knowledge production, and an approach to learning that connects you to the wider world.

The Department endeavours to ensure that the information in this handbook is as accurate and up to date as possible. Statements of departmental policy are made in good faith and are an honest attempt to describe current practices. However, the final arbiter of policy and procedure is the University Regulations as laid down in the University Calendar, which can be found on the University Governance webpages
