    Course Structure

    This course can be taken full-time over 1 year or part-time over 2 years.

    You will be required to take a number of core modules – one of which will be appropriate to your chosen pathway – in order to give you the skills necessary for an extended piece of independent research in your subject area.

    Over the course of two semesters, you will complete 120 credits’ worth of core and optional modules. You will then be expected to undertake a 60-credit supervised dissertation in a subject area relevant to the pathway you have followed (although we do offer you the choice of opting out of the pathway system altogether in order to create your own pathway of study leading towards your dissertation).

    Modules are typically assessed through a written piece of coursework.

    It is also possible to take the taught components of this course without completing the dissertation in order to attain the award of Postgraduate Diploma in History.

    In addition, we offer an MA in History (Research), which follows a similar programme of study to the MA in History but places further emphasis on research training and the dissertation
