MA at the Centre for Maritime Historical Studies, University of Exeter



The Centre was the first of its kind in a British university. It can call on a wide range of expertise in maritime historical studies within the university and seeks to promote research into economic, social, political, naval and environmental aspects of the British maritime past from the earliest times to the present day. The Maritime Historical Studies MA pathway gives students a grounding on Maritime and Naval History and a choice of modules related to maritime issues. For the MA, students research and write a dissertation on their chosen topic. And the MA is available both part time over 2 years or full time in 1 year.
