Description

Advertisement

The MLitt in Cultural History introduces the various methodologies embraced by cultural history, provides a thorough grounding in research methods and skills, and offers expert research training in a wide range of topics.

You will also have the opportunity to conduct a research project of your own, supervised by a member of the cultural history staff. This programme is the best possible introduction to the subject for potential PhD students, but is designed chiefly as a rewarding, stimulating programme in its own right, whether or not you envisage further study

PROGRAMME LENGTH

MLitt 12 months full-time, 24 months part-time
PgDip 9 months full-time (no dissertation)

Contents

All students take the core course 'Introduction to Historical Research', which introduces the range of methodologies, research skills and practical tools available to the historian. Students also take a course which will provide guidance on how to research and plan the dissertation. The rest of the timetable, apart from the dissertation itself, consists of a range of elective courses on different themes in cultural history. Students normally take four of these in order to gain the right number of credits.

A selection of current courses includes:
* Trolls, Druids and the Walking Dead: Imagining the Pagan Past in Medieval Norse and Gaelic Culture
* Writing the History of Science
* Historiography: The Writing of European History from Herodotos to von Ranke
* The Irish and Scottish Diasporas, 1730-1930
* Witchcraft, Traditional Practices and the Rise of a Protestant Culture in Early Modern Scotland
* The Enlightenment in Comparison: Scotland and Central Europe, 1650-1800

Assessment
Students must acquire 180 credits over the course of the year (120 for courses + 60 for dissertation). Assessment is based on written work and moderated according to university standards. Every student is assigned a dissertation supervisor based on their research interests.

Requirements

Applicants should normally hold a 2(i) Honours degree in an appropriate discipline. For international applicants, proof of proficiency in English is required.
The English Language Requirement for all College of Arts and Social Sciences Masters programmes is an IELTS of 6.5 with 6.0 in the writing and reading (or equivalent TOEFL iBT or PTE). For more information see

Good English is required not only for the student's own academic success but also because it is necessary to be able to contribute at seminars and perhaps conferences, as well as reading texts and writing essays or papers. Applicants should supply the University with transcripts of their previous academic study and also with the names of two academic referees, or ask their referees to send in their recommendations directly to the University without waiting for a formal notice from the University.

English Language Requirements
