Year of entry: 2024

Career opportunities

Many of our MA students go on to PhD research, whether in the history of science, technology and medicine itself, in other fields of history, or in a range of allied subjects including historical geography, science and technology studies, and museum studies.

Other graduates have gone on to a diverse range of careers involving a significant element of specialist expertise on the role of science or medicine in society. These include museums, science centres and the heritage sector; libraries and archives; the civil service; media production; journalism; specialist public relations; and technical authorship and editing.

The MA is also a valued qualification for general graduate recruitment, owing to its combination of scientific and medical context with a humanities-style focus on writing skills.
