This course concentrates on different geographical scales of history, including local and global perspectives. It allows students the opportunity to engage with a range of approaches to the study of history, examining a range of historical subjects from the early middle ages to the present. The programme offers introductory elements which explore historical methods and research skills, in-depth topic-based modules and the opportunity to devise and develop a specialist dissertation. The Approaches to the Past Module, which runs in the first semester for all new students, provides guidance on the different approaches to the study of history, including geographical scales of study and disciplinary approaches. Research training for the dissertation is provided in a specialist module through a blend of electronic learning and face-to-face contact, which helps the students through a range of research tasks associated with the development of the dissertation. This leads to a Day Conference (Independent Study Presentation), in which students showcase their dissertation plans and their development, and debate themes in the study of history with external speakers.
Normally a first or upper second-class Honours degree, or professional experience in the a related subject, or professional experience in the area of study. Applicants who do not have a first or upper second class honours degree will be interviewed in person, or by Skype.
