The programme involves two semesters of teaching followed by an individual research project. As one of the largest departments of History in the UK, you’ll have a range of courses to choose from, enabling you to tailor your degree to your interests and ambitions.
The MSc lasts for 12 months from September to the end of August in the following year. To be awarded an MSc you must complete the coursework and a dissertation.
The taught courses are worth a total of 120 credit points and are assessed mainly by essays and written work. Provided you achieve the required standard, you will proceed to a period of individual research from May to August, resulting in a final dissertation worth a further 60 credits.
The programme is also offered on a part-time basis.
