Social History MA could be 'right up your street'
interested in the history of social issues and public welfare who are
keen to gain a new qualification will find attractive the new
part-time MA in Social History offered by the University of
Leicester's Centre for Urban History (CUH).
This flexible two-year course focuses on the urban
experience of communities and individual lives. Tailored to fit in
with working life and commitments, the course is taught in the
evenings once a week at CUH.
The MA's elements include Testimonies of the City
(oral history), and Vices and Virtues (a social history of changing
attitudes to tobacco, alcohol, swearing and sex in twentieth-century
Britain). A diverse range of social issues will be covered.
Entry qualifications are flexible. Though a first
degree is preferred, the Centre also takes into consideration courses
and qualifications obtained in the workplace.
Centre for Urban History offers unrivalled expertise in oral and
social history with an experienced team of adult education teachers.
CUH provides a stimulating and supportive research environment. It
organises and hosts several academic meetings a year and has a regular
programme of public seminars with distinguished visiting speakers
running throughout the academic year.
