  • Entry requirements
    The MA in Maritime History offers the opportunity to combine a thorough grounding in research skills with detailed study of different facets of maritime history. As well as providing training in the techniques and methodologies of historical research, this distinctive programme allows specialisation in fields such as British merchant shipping since 1800, European fisheries history, the ship in history and 20th-century naval history. A dissertation, based on primary research in one of these areas, completes the programme. With a full range of archival, library, IT and other resources, the University of Hull – located in a vibrant port-city – is extremely well placed to provide this innovative Masters programme. This MA in Maritime History is available as a one year full-time or two year part-time programme and is taught by a strong complement of specialist maritime and naval historians at the MHSC. Other members of the History Department teach the various research training modules that are offered.
