From its origins back in the 10th Century A.D, Malaysia has seen rapid and radical change during its existence. A unique multi-racial country that encompases both a peninsula as well as an island (island of Borneo), Malaysia has experienced first-hand many important conflicts in its time.

Be it the dramatic arrival of the Portuguese and English, or the destructive entrance of the Japanese forces in World War II, to the eventual struggle for independence, and the subsequent development of the country into one of the most developed nations in ASEAN, the Master of Arts (Malaysia History) programme is a truly epic and fascinating look into the past.
