The programme is very flexible in nature and will enable you to study the periods and subjects that most interest you.
Modules and dissertation supervision are available in all aspects of the political, social, and cultural history of Britain and Ireland from 800AD to the present day.
You will take one or two core modules in British History and choose the remaining credits from MA modules within the School of History Classics and Archaeology, or another School, that is of interest and relevance.
Alternatively you may wish to incorporate one or more Independent Study modules into your programme, allowing you maximum flexibility to pursue your own interests. It is also possible to study a foreign language (optionally) as part of your skills enhancement, at a range of levels from beginners to advanced.
The taught modules are delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, individual tutorials and self-directed learning. You then complete a dissertation on any period of British history.
