MSc Historical Studies

I found that the MSc Historical Studies would offer me the opportunity to delve further into topics that I had explored at undergraduate level and conduct research independently for coursework and my dissertation.

MSc Health History

The courses helped me a lot in understanding research theory and methods. This knowledge will help me to do better research in the future. I found that history of health and medicine has developed significantly. It covers not only the evolution of medical theory and technology but also major changes of society and culture.
