    General programme structure

    MRes Architectural History can be taken either full time over 12 months or part time over 24 months. The MRes Architectural History programme comprises three assessed modules: research methods in architectural history, research in the arts and humanities, and a masters thesis, or approved research project. Full-time students take research methods in architectural history in term one, research in the arts and humanities over terms one and two, and their thesis across the full academic year. Part-time students take the two taught modules in year one and carry out their thesis in the second year.

    The primary assessment of the MRes Architectural History programme is the submission of a thesis or approved research project relevant to the study of architectural history. The thesis, or approved research project, is taught via one-on-one supervision during term time and through agreed tutorials up to the final submission in September. Students are also encouraged to attend seminar groups and postgraduate training opportunities.

    The module will be taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars and workshops. The module will be assessed by an essay or equivalent approved research project
