The Naval History Blog

Welcome to The Naval History Blog!

The MA was established in 2016 and offers a unique opportunity to study the history of the Royal Navy at postgraduate level. It is an online course which offers flexible distance learning. However, as it is located at the home of the Royal Navy, Portsmouth, and we have established a strong partnership with the National Museum of the Royal Navy, we are able to provide students with unparalleled behind the scenes access to museum experts, archives and historic ships.
